2020 SHIEC Conference – NOW VIRTUAL
August 16 - August 19
August 16-19, 2020 Now Virtual
From SHIEC website:
SHIEC has been monitoring the COVID-19 crisis to determine if we would be able to host the annual SHIEC Conference in-person August 16 – 19, 2020. We have been working closely with the San Antonio Marriott and speaking with the SHIEC Board and SHIEC Members to understand their concerns about traveling and coming together in-person during the pandemic. The key considerations have been that we want to ensure that our community stays safe and healthy and that HIEs throughout the country are enabled to continue leading COVID-19 response activities in their communities.
Given the level of uncertainty during this public health crisis, organizational travel restrictions and each state’s response to the crisis differs, we feel that it would be socially irresponsible to host an in-person conference this year. Therefore, we will be transitioning the in-person SHIEC Annual Conference in San Antonio this August to be a SHIEC Annual Virtual Conference instead.
After the virtual event series this year, we will have the SHIEC Conference in Scottsdale, AZ in 2021 as originally planned and then will be in San Antonio in 2022. Save the Date for SHIEC 2022 in San Antonio, August 22 – 24, 2022.
We understand this year will be our first year hosting a virtual conference and thank you in advance for your continued support. Look for more information to come.
