AUPresses Seattle Conference Cancelled, Virtual Event in the Works

The Association of University Presses (AUPresses) Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the AUPresses 2020 Annual Meeting, scheduled to be held June 13-15 in Seattle, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The possible risks to the safety and health of our attendees, as well as the uncertain duration of current travel restrictions, have made it impossible for the in-person meeting to proceed.

The Association gratefully acknowledges the work of the 2020 Annual Meeting Program Committee, chaired by Laurie Matheson (director, University of Illinois Press), and also thanks those who were organizing workshops and special events.

Details about the Association’s virtual meeting in June are forthcoming:

The AUPresses 2020 Annual Meeting in Seattle would have coincided with the 100th anniversary of the University of Washington Press. Congratulations to its director Nicole Mitchell and all staff members on reaching this milestone.
