    2020 AEI Annual Congress Report
    10/19/20 - AMFA
    October 19, 2020 -- Last week AEI held its 48th Annual Congress virtually utilizing the Teams Application due to the realities of the Covid-19 virus that has swept the world. At first there was a plan to have the executive board gather in person and have the delegates from our affiliate unions join an on-line meeting; however, as the date got near and the virus started its fall surge, travel restrictions were raised, and that plan had to be abandoned in favor of an all virtual meeting. The Congress was well coordinated and attended, even with the participants being in various time zones around the globe.
