I just saw a message that AWHONN was holding both and in-person and live virtual Event. What has changed? As promised, we’ve continued to consider the health and safety of our attendees, and as the uncertainty around COVID-19, particularly as it relates to meeting protocols in Florida, persists, the Board of Directors has advised the staff to transform the in-person and live-digital hybrid event into a full virtual Convention.
When will the virtual Convention take place? The Virtual Convention will take place over the dates of October 10-13. A detailed schedule of events will be provided in the days to come.
If I already registered for Convention, can I switch my registration to the Virtual Event? All registrants will be switched to a virtual attendee by Sept. 15 unless a request to cancel is submitted by that date. Registration cancellations should be submitted to AWHONN@maritz.com. Refunds will be processed within 30 days.
