The Alumni Association was fortunate to hold the 2020 Annual Postgraduate Convention last March before California went into lockdown. Since then, dramatic changes have occurred in every corner of the world, and the majority of conference events like APC have had to evolve to meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why APC 2021 is a 100 percent virtual event: everything will be streamed online for you to view. There will be no in-person activities in Loma Linda.
Though this means that there are a number of necessary changes this year relating to how you attend or participate in APC, the main offerings and functions remain largely the same. We are doing every- thing possible to make APC educational and fun! As always, our
goal is to provide a valuable continuing education experience as well as meaningful opportunities to connect with colleagues, celebrate fellow alumni, and reacquaint yourself with Loma Linda University.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Organizing a virtual APC is a new experience for our dedicated APC team of alumni and staff, and we are doing our best to keep you well informed and to make registration and participation a smooth process. Though the virtual aspect this year keeps us from engaging in person, we encourage you to start now in making plans to watch events like CME lectures, the Gala, or Homecoming worship services together with friends and family—whether joining together online or in safe, small groups at home.
For the latest information about registration, featured speakers, schedules, and more, continue checking the 2021 APC and Homecoming websites and looking for mailed or emailed items from the Alumni Association.
Below we have included some helpful information about what you can expect as you prepare for this year’s APC.
