From Gayla Smith, IaHIMA President:
Due to the concerns surrounding the COVID-19 and after significant discussion and emails, the IaHIMA Board decided to cancel the annual meeting for 2020. While this was a difficult decision, given the hours spent by the Board planning to conduct a successful, productive and fun meeting, there truly was no practical way to convene due to restrictions placed on nonessential travel, advisories against travel, and the CDC’s recommendations of avoiding gatherings of 50 or more people for 8 weeks.
As of right now, there are no plans to reschedule the meeting in 2020, but there will be discussions of other ways to provide you, the members, with CEU’s. Our communication Liaison, Abbi Telford will be posting updates, so please look for e-blasts, and check the website and the IaHIMA community on Engage for additional information in the coming months. The members health and safety is our number one concern.
For those who have already paid for their hotel rooms, please contact the hotel and cancel your registration.
IaHIMA will be issuing refunds for registration fees. Please contact Gayla Smith at [email protected]. If you paid by credit card, please do not dispute your credit card charge. The association will be working with you to issue a refund.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the board members.
