Leadership Transition and Gavel Transfer

Each year at the ACSM Annual Meeting Friday evening banquet the current ACSM President is recognized and thanked for their contributions to the college. At this time, the President-elect is brought to the stage, a ceremonial passing of the gavel occurs, and the new President begins their duties by leading the Saturday Board of Trustees meeting.

This year, however, was different. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Meeting in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, this ceremony occurred virtually.

"ACSM’s Annual Meeting is an incubator for connection and collaboration between research and clinical experts in their respective fields to provide a more expansive and true picture of physical activity and sports medicine around the globe. The education and research makes me a better all around clinician and physical activity champion."

"I have attended ACSM’s Annual Meeting since the early ‘90s as a grad student. My mentors were very involved, and now I am delighted to do the same for my students. Through the conference, I have learned about cutting-edge information in my discipline and those closely related, as well as developed many friendships. People should attend to stay current in their fields and network with current and new professionals."
