ADHA to cancel event that was scheduled for June in New Orleans; will be replaced by virtual conference
The ongoing effects from COVID-19 have forced the American Dental Hygienists Association (ADHA) to cancel its Annual Conference schedule for New Orleans. The event was to have taken place June 26-28.
However, the Association will hold a virtual conference in its place on those same dates, and registration begins this Wednesday, April 29.
“Due to the enduring impacts of COVID-19, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our in-person Annual Conference,” reads a statement on the Association’s website.
“We were really looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans, however, the health and safety of our community must come first. So, we’re going virtual! Although we can’t be together in person, we can unite from the comfort of home for the first-ever ADHA Virtual Conference, Friday, June 26–Sunday, June 28.”
Designed to be a cost-effective experience for all budgets, the full three-day virtual conference is $150 for ADHA members, with single-day rates are also available.
Those who registered for the in-person event in the Crescent City will receive an email on Wednesday, April 29th asking if you’d like to transfer your in-person registration fee to the virtual option. If so, your registration will be completed, and a refund will be issued for the difference (approximately 50 percent) of the in-person registration fee. You will receive the refund within 90 days.
If you wish not to register for the virtual event, just reply “no,” and a full refund of your ADHA 2020 Annual Conference registration fee will be refunded within 90 days. You also have the option to apply your registration to next year’s in-person Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ, June 18-20, 2021.
