• Hurricane Ida and AAO 2021


    The Academy’s thoughts are with friends and colleagues who have survived Hurricane Ida in Louisiana and the surrounding states.  

    The damage will not affect AAO 2021, which is scheduled for Nov. 12-15 in New Orleans. We are in contact with officials there and are closely following developments in the city.  

    The convention center, hotels and airport did not suffer significant damage. The local energy company is assessing the damage to the electrical grid, but it will not affect our meeting.
