UPDATE: 2022 Winter Annual Meeting Cancelled

NWAO’s Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel the January 2022 Whistler Annual Meeting due to the ongoing COVID pandemic. Although this is a big disappointment to us all, we are hopeful that we’ll be able to have the Whistler meeting in January 2023. Please check back often for updates as more information becomes available.

And please be sure to renew your membership dues, if you haven’t done so already. We need to keep this organization afloat during this difficult and prolonged period. You can renew and pay your dues online by clicking here.


In Remembrance of Dr. Eduardo Mendez who exemplified the virtues we should all hope to achieve.
