Dear ASCLD Colleagues,

Last week, I welcomed a team of ASCLD Board Members and Event Professionals to Boston for a Site Visit of the Westin Copley Place. Together, we toured the space that will host ASCLD 2021. Midway through our tour, my cell phone buzzed with a message from the City of Boston – Boston will reopen to full capacity May 29th!!! We were thrilled!

Though pandemic restrictions are lifting, we are still taking into account cleanliness and social distancing as we plan the event to ensure that attendees feel comfortable and safe. We sold out our offsite event at Fenway Park in a matter of days, we are ready to kick off two levels of Leadership Academy, and our Symposium registration numbers are climbing. 

The location of the meeting couldn’t be better. It is a short ride from Logan Airport, steps from shopping and restaurants, and surrounded by history. Maybe add on a few days to the trip and explore Boston? I am looking forward to welcoming you to my hometown.

Have a terrific week!

Be well,


Erin P. Forry

ASCLD President
