2020 GHSLA Annual Meeting Postponed Until March 2021

The executive committee initially planned to move the March meeting to June 2020, but due to the current environment and the uncertainty of what the rest of the year will bring, we’ve decided to postpone the conference until March 2021. The 2020 meeting agenda will still be in place, barring any issues with speaker/presenter availability.

The 2021 meeting will be held in-person at Hotel Indigo – Vinings and the finalized dates will be forthcoming.

All registration fees paid for this year’s meeting will be transferred to next year’s meeting. If you require a refund, please contact emily.lawson@emory.edu to request one.

Please note: There will still be two more GHSLA regularly-scheduled meetings for 2020. The first will be held virtually in June. The meeting agenda will be sent out in May.

POSTPONED GHSLA Annual Meeting

The GHSLA Spring Meeting planned for Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17 IS POSTPONED.

In recognition of the evolving policies, institutional recommendations, and travel restrictions the GHSLA executive board and Planning Committee have decided to postpone the Spring GHSLA meeting.

We are currently working with the hosting hotel to identify available dates for a Summer meeting.  For those that reserved a hotel room, you have until Saturday March 14th at 6pm to cancel without penalty.  We currently have inquires out to see if this window can be extended. For those with room reservations, I would encourage you to contact the hotel directly at 1-770-4325555| Email Hotel

Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.  We will share any additional information as it becomes available.

We thank you all for your understanding and flexibility,

~Kim Powell, GHSLA President
