(03/16/20) NAHAD 2020 - Cancelled

Dear NAHAD members,

Thank you to the almost 300 NAHAD members who completed the survey I sent Friday regarding rescheduling NAHAD’s 2020 Annual Meeting & Convention. Your feedback was essential in helping NAHAD’s leadership come to a decision.

As a result of your comments, NAHAD will NOT host an Annual Convention in 2020. Only about a third of you stated you would attend the Convention if held in late August and about 25 percent of you said hosting a convention that late in the year would impact your attendance in 2021. This was an incredibly difficult decision, but ultimately the right one for the health of our members and long-term success of the association.

Please know if you were registered to attend the Convention, you will be refunded in full. Our meetings and finance departments will work through this process and all refunds will be processed within the next 30 days. Additionally, the Atlantis will cancel all room reservations for you directly. You do not need to call the property to cancel if you booked through the NAHAD room block; if you booked outside of it, you will need to cancel your room directly.

We still plan to hold NAHAD’s Annual Meeting of Members virtually in April. Please look for additional communications from me in the coming weeks. A lot of exceptional initiatives have occurred during the past year and NAHAD’s leadership looks forward to sharing these efforts with our membership.

I will continue to share new developments as they occur and thank you for your support and your patience during these past few weeks. NAHAD WILL host an upcoming Convention at the Atlantis, and more details on future conventions will be shared as soon as possible.

All the best,
Molly Alton Mullins, Executive Vice President
