Thank you for the outpouring of support we have received following the PAS 2020 cancellation. Your kind affirmation of this difficult decision is most appreciated. Many have asked how to assist the PAS to ensure it remains a vital center for the academic pediatrics community. 
After careful consideration, we are offering the option for paid PAS registrants to donate their 2020 registration fees, in lieu of a full refund. This donation option is offered in response to the generous desire we have among you for a practical way to sustain the PAS at this difficult time. Donations will be used to advance the planning already underway for a vibrant and exciting PAS 2021 Meeting, April 28 – May 5, 2021, in Vancouver (Canada). 
By May 12, please take a moment to indicate if you prefer a Full Refund of your registration fee, or prefer to Donate Your Registration Fee to PAS. Donations are entirely voluntary, and as the PAS is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by IRS guidelines. 
Any paid registrant who prefers a refund – or may be unable to donate due to original funding restrictions – will receive a full refund of registration fees. For further questions regarding refunds or donations, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions posted to the PAS website or contact the PAS office at or 346.980.9717. 
Thank you again for your tremendous support. We wish you safety and health as we all navigate this challenging time together.
