Why did AHA decide to cancel the ACHI 2020 National Conference?
In light of the latest COVID-19 developments and CDC recommendations, AHA has canceled the ACHI National Conference scheduled for June 15-17 in Cleveland, as well as affiliated events. At this unprecedented time, health care and community leaders must remain on-site in their essential roles.
Will I get my registration fees back?
Anyone who has registered for the conference will receive a full refund. No action is required. Registrants will receive confirmation receipts via email in the coming weeks.
What about my hotel and travel reservations?
ATTENDEES: If you booked a hotel room within the conference block at the Hilton or Marriott, your reservation will be automatically canceled and you will receive notification later this week. If you booked outside this block, you are responsible for canceling the hotel reservations. Please also cancel other travel plans such as flights and dining reservations.
STAFF: If you made flight reservations through AHA’s American Express travel center, you must cancel your own reservation, and a credit will be applied to your profile.
Will materials and virtual sessions be made available?
With the world rightly focused on fighting COVID-19, ACHI will not be releasing conference materials at this time. We are committed to providing important advocacy information necessary for the health care field. Please look for opportunities from AHA and ACHI to receive information both virtually and at future in-person meetings. And know that AHA will continue to keep the field informed of the latest updates and resources on COVID-19.
I made group dinner reservations during the annual meeting. Are those canceled for me?
If you have made dining reservations at the hotel or other venues, please call and cancel directly with those places at your earliest convenience.
What is the AHA doing to support COVID-19 efforts?
The AHA will continue to keep the field informed of the latest updates and resources on COVID-19. In addition, AHA has launched the 100 Million Mask Challenge and Stories from the Front Lines.
