Annual Meeting Locations

ASTRO leadership has been listening carefully to the questions and varied opinions shared about meeting locations, including our upcoming Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, set to take place in just three months. Despite our collective desire to share the latest research and clinical trial results, we've heard from some that they are uncomfortable visiting Texas, as its laws make them feel unsafe or unwelcome.

Attempting to move the Annual Meeting to a new city at this late date would be a herculean challenge with immense and extraordinary ramifications, including significant financial implications and detriment in the quality of presentations, education and engagement. ASTRO leadership made the difficult decision to hold the meeting as planned. For those of you who choose to not travel to Texas, we respect your decision. We expanded our virtual offering to give you complete access to the entire meeting, which will be fully livestreamed for the first time this year. Additionally, all registrants, both in-person and virtual, have full access to the onDemand recordings as part of their registrations.

We are pleased to announce that our 2023 meeting will be in San Diego, California. For future meeting locations, we understand your concerns, and these considerations are at the forefront of our decision-making process.

The health care landscape in this post-Roe era is ever evolving, with varying implications on a per-state basis, and in some cases possibly within states. ASTRO is monitoring the situation attentively, and as members identify needed resources, we will look to meet those needs. We also encourage continued dialogue on these important issues; please continue to access ROhub to respectfully share your perspective.

As a community, we responded well to the unexpected challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As medical professionals, we hope the ASTRO community will again rise to the occasion and continue to prioritize the health care of its patients and members.
