A Message About NAHAD’s 2021 Annual Convention

From Molly Alton Mullins

Hello Valued NAHAD Members,

With 2021 now upon us, I wanted to provide an update on NAHAD’s Annual Meeting and Convention, currently scheduled for April 10-13 in San Diego, CA. As I’m sure you are aware, restrictions on group gatherings are still in place in California which we continue to monitor. I appreciate all the feedback I have received from the membership regarding the Convention and your desire to host an in-person event.

However, with recent surges and so many company travel bans in place, NAHAD is looking into alternatives to ensure the most successful 2021 Annual Convention possible. One such possibility is moving the Convention two months later to June 12-15, 2021. We would plan the same program, and hopefully this would allow for the additional time needed for vaccine distribution. I welcome your thoughts and feedback on this alternative plan at as the Executive Committee will discuss this later this month at our January Meeting.

To our registered exhibitors and attendees: Please note NAHAD will NOT adhere to our traditional cancellation policy and refund deadline. If the Convention dates are moved and/or you cannot attend for any reason, we will refund you in full. We understand that you have registered because you want to attend, and this year there are simply too many variables in play to warrant a cancellation penalty. I hope this helps put you at ease as we navigate these next few months.

As always, thank you for your continued support of NAHAD. This is truly a remarkable industry and community, and we look forward to getting everyone together later this year.
