Canceled: FACT Cellular Therapy Collection Inspection and Accreditation Workshop

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 3 :: Friday, April 24th, 2020

The American Society for Apheresis (ASFA) Board of Directors has decided not to proceed with the ASFA 2020 Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for May 6 – 9, 2020 in Austin, Texas due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

For the same considerations, the associated FACT Cellular Therapy Collection Inspection and Accreditation Workshop scheduled for May 6, 2020 has also been cancelled.

The ASFA Board of Directors is currently assessing the feasibility of rescheduling the Annual Meeting for later this year. If ASFA reschedules the annual meeting, the FACT workshop will also be rescheduled. Your payment will be applied to the new FACT Collection Inspection and Accreditation Workshop date. If the meeting is not rescheduled for 2020, your payment can be applied to the FACT workshop at the 2021 ASFA Meeting. If you prefer to receive a refund, please contact the FACT Business Manager, Jay Ann Witt at

The health and well-being of our cellular therapy community, volunteers, staff, and patients is our utmost concern. We look forward to seeing you at our next workshop. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the FACT Office.
