IHFDA 5th Annual Virtual Conference
After some painstaking consideration, the International Health Facility Diversion Association (IHFDA) Board has decided to change our annual conference format from in-person to a virtual conference. This was finalized last Friday after the results of the member survey were discussed. The survey revealed that most of you cannot travel with the support of your employer and that a virtual conference would be your preference.
These times have made it important that we proceed with a virtual conference as we work with the Chicago hotel to schedule a future national conference at their facility. Although we are somewhat disappointed with not being able to hold an in-person conference, we are also excited about exploring all the possibilities that a virtual conference brings.
By June 15th, the IHFDA Board will be providing a full educational agenda slated for September 20-22, 2021, from 12 Noon-4PM EST, each day. In addition, up to 4 hours of additional educational sessions will be available to conference attendees. Each hour will include our usual continuing education credits. Registration will also be made available at the same time as the agenda is made public.
Accommodations are also being made for our corporate sponsors and vendors to participate in the virtual conference. They will be contacted separately to explain some of our options and to receive input from them as to how they see this conference can be as good as possible. Those of you who have already registered, we can provide you with a full refund, or apply it toward the virtual conference.
Thank you for understanding, as this decision was not made in haste, but with considerable thought and intent. The IHFDA Board is looking forward to bringing you another incredible agenda and program, thanks for supporting us!
