ASTMH Does Not Share Member or Annual Meeting Attendee Emails 

That email you received offering to provide you with a list of attendees for the 2021 Annual Meeting? It's a scam. Just like every other email claiming to have a list of ASTMH members to share. The Society never has and never will sell, share or distribute email addresses. 
And speaking of scams, is the ONLY place to register for the Annual Meeting. We do not use any third party service to manage our registration.
