These are very difficult times during this full blown COVID -19 pandemic sweeping our nation. After being shuttered for 60 days beginning March with no gates and now operating at below 50% capacity, all of us are feeling the effects of the economic challenges as we try to keep our businesses alive and operational.

The pandemic created worse challenges including social distancing, mandatory face covering and travel restrictions, resulting in a reluctance to travel and gather for conferences and social events.

As a result, ZAA regrettably and reluctantly cancels its 2020 ZAA Annual Conference hosted by Fort Worth Zoo.

We thank you for your support and cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hopefully, this will all be over in due course and life will be back to normal as we know it.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing ideas when we figure out the 2021 Mid-Year Meeting and 2021 Annual Conference.

John Seyjagat,
