AHIMA Advocacy Summit has been cancelled
After careful consideration and based on continued reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) about the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we are announcing the cancellation of AHIMA’s 2020 Advocacy Summit, which was scheduled to take place in Washington, DC, March 23-24.
The health and well-being of our members, speakers, staff, and guests is our first priority. Our primary concern is protecting everyone involved with the summit from contracting or spreading COVID-19.
We know that many members look forward to the summit. The AHIMA team is exploring how we can develop alternative ways for speakers and presenters to share their work that permits members to earn CEUs. We will share more details as we have them.
AHIMA appreciates our members’ commitment to advocating for HIM issues. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of the presenters and panelists who agreed to speak. We also appreciate the support from our HIP Week sponsor, 3M.
We sincerely regret this cancellation and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause you.
