Regional meeting materials

Plan to attend upcoming regional meetings that run from February 3 through March 4. We strongly encourage all transplant programs, OPOs and histocompatability laboratories to send a representative to the meeting. Regional meetings are open to the public and we invite all members of the transplant community and public to participate.

Review presentations, summaries and other documents for upcoming regional meetings:

Webinars to review public comment proposals

Non-discussion webinars

Two national webinars were held to provide members an opportunity to learn about the proposals on the non-discussion agenda.
