HMA Executive Vice President
Usually at this time, I would be thanking you all - HMA members, industry suppliers, Conference presenters, panel participants –for participating in HMA’s National Conference and Expo. Not today! The COVID-19 pandemic has changed practically every aspect of what used to be ‘normal’ for our lives. And the mind set for today, personally and professionally, is simply to be as ready as possible for what’s coming next.
In this “wait-and-see” mode of operation, those of us that can are working from home in an effort to keep everyone healthy and safe. And we’re also doing our utmost to stay focused on the positive; tune out the “noise;” and do what it takes to forge ahead. Speaking of what’s ahead …
HMA’s National Conference and Expo has been rescheduled!
Yes, it’s Game-On for NatCon 2020, August 19-21, at the JW Marriott Nashville. And our Conference theme, “Piloting Change,” couldn’t be more apropos! Please note:
- All previously made room reservations have been cancelled. Please make your new room reservation at JW Marriott online, as soon as possible, to secure your hotel accommodations.
- HMA will be contacting - Registered attendees, sponsors and exhibitors – to confirm your Registration, Exhibit Space and Conference participation.
Don’t miss this. The stage has been re-set for a host of networking events, business sessions, and a stellar industry Expo, HMA style. So renew your plans to participate and ultimately be better prepared to hit the ground running, after this extraordinary roller coaster ride.
