Upcoming Conferences

We are pleased to announce we have approval to hold 3 meetings in FY 12 for 99 participants each. Every VA facility with a Federalwide Assurance (FWA) will be invited to send up to one representative to each meeting. Space will be very limited because speakers and local participants (i.e., people who are not on travel from another city) now count toward the 99 participants at each meeting. For this reason registration will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis as space allows. We will send out registration information for the first meeting soon - there is nothing you need to do until you receive the registration announcement.

The three meetings will be as follows:

  • 2012 VA IRB Administrators Meeting
    Target audience: VA IRB Administrators (Affiliate IRB Administrators may attend as the facility's one representative)
    • Chicago, IL
    • May 30-31, 2012
  • 2012 VA HRPP Meeting
    Target audience: ACOS/R&D or AO/R&D (one representative from each facility)
    • San Francisco, CA
    • June 26-27, 2012
  • 2012 VA IRB Chairs Meeting
    Target audience: VA IRB Chairs (Affiliate IRB Chairs may attend as the facility's one representative)
    • Baltimore, MD
    • August 14-15, 2012
