    We would like to thank the NAACCR 2020 Program Committee, our colleagues at the Pennsylvania and New Jersey state cancer registries, and the submitted abstract authors and reviewers for all their efforts in helping plan the NAACCR 2020 Annual Conference. We are disappointed that the in-person NAACCR 2020 Conference has been cancelled due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, but our priority is the health of our cancer surveillance community.
