About regional meetings

Summer 2021 regional meetings

The health and safety of our meeting attendees is our top priority. After reviewing all information, the decision has been made to hold all summer 2021 regional meetings in-person with access to the meeting provided virtually.

Registration and additional meeting details available soon on your region’s webpage.

Regional meetings are held twice each year during the winter and summer public comment periods. Regional meetings are an opportunity to influence policy proposals, prepare for upcoming changes, and hear perspectives from the transplant community about improvements to organ allocation.

For details about winter 2021 public comment visit the public comment webpage. New to the public comment process? Learn more here.

“It is important to be engaged in the transplant community. I have worked in the field for 24 years, and I am always learning new things and finding ways to incorporate best practices into our work. These meetings help me gain a better understanding of the needs and priorities of our colleagues in transplant.”

Felicia Wells-Williams, Legacy of Life Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii
