On April 29, 2012, the American Academy of Neurology will move into its new state-of-the-art headquarters in the historic Mill District of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
"After more than 63 years, the AAN will move into a permanent headquarters building that is designed to meet the ever increasing needs of our leadership, members, and staff.

We concluded that this was the best opportunity to ensure the long-term viability of our organization.
