BioCommunications Association Executive Board Statement in response to Covid-19 global pandemic

Updated March 31, 2020

Through this difficult time in the history of our world, our thoughts are with you and we hope that you and your families are faring as well as possible. As you are all aware, the Coronavirus (COVID‑19) has had a major impact on every facet of our lives and disrupted most businesses and organizations as well.

For the BCA, we have postponed BIOCOMM 2020 to BIOCOMM 2021, negotiated a change with the hotel and signed a new contract. BIOCOMM2020/21 will be held May 18-22, 2021 at the same location, the Drury Hotel, Santa Fe, NM.

  • If you have made your room reservations for 2020, you must call the hotel at (+1) 505-424-2175 and cancel your room to avoid any charges.
  • We have refunded registration fees already paid this year via PayPal. Contact office@bca.org if you have any problems/questions about this.
  • The new hotel reservation and a new link will activate at the end of May and will be posted on the meeting page.
  • The new meeting registration form will be available after May on the meeting page.

In the face of adversity the BCA executive team will be taking this opportunity to do a few things a little differently this year. The fact that we cannot meet in person does not mean that we can't meet at all, so we will be holding a few online events that would normally only be at BIOCOMM. To find out more about these upcoming events: BioImages, the Associations business meeting and town hall meeting please click here.

Thank you all and stay safe.

BCA leadership is available to you by phone or email.


Adam Cooper, President
Jamie Hayden, Vice President
Jim Koepfler, Secretary/Treasurer
