Published on March 13, 2020
(Washington, DC) The African American Mayors Association (AAMA) President Hardie Davis, Mayor of Augusta, GA, released the following statement in response to the global COVID-19 crisis:
After much discussion with the AAMA Board of Trustees and partners, AAMA has made the decision to postpone our upcoming Annual Conference, "Engaging and Connecting Communities" that was to be held in Atlanta, GA, April 22-24, 2020. The conference will now be held on September 8-10, 2020.
AAMA will continue to closely track guidance provided by federal, state, and local health officials on COVID-19, and the AAMA offices are fully prepared to keep operating to serve mayors and their communities. My fellow mayors and I stand together in taking proper protective actions to keep our communities safe, and ask that our communities stay diligent in following public health guidelines as we combat this global pandemic together.
