A Message from the Prep Summit Planning Committee

Thank you for your patience as NACCHO and the organizations comprising the planning committee have been navigating our response to the COVID-19 pandemic with respect to conducting the conference. As you can appreciate, this is a large undertaking in a time when attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors, hotels and other logistical support companies are all facing their own challenges at home and uncertainties for the future. We have appreciated your feedback and done our best to incorporate it into our plans moving forward. 

As you know, out of concern for the safety of both our attendees and their families, Federal, state and local travel restrictions and deployment of many participants to COVID-19 response, we are postponing the 2020 Preparedness Summit to August 23-26, 2020. The Hilton Dallas Anatole in in Dallas, Texas remains the home for the meeting. We wish to extend our gratitude to the Hilton for their flexibility in supporting our efforts to reschedule. 

If you were registered for the original conference dates, we look forward to seeing you in Dallas in August! Your registration for the original Prep Summit dates (March 31-April 3) has been rolled over, and you are now registered for our August meeting. If these alternate dates conflict with your professional or personal commitments, you have the option to transfer your registration to another colleague or to receive a refund. Please email PrepSummitReg@naccho.org no later than Friday, May 15, 2020 to make changes.

We are working through the complicated logistics that result from this decision as rapidly as possible. In the interim, we expect you have many questions regarding conference registration, hotel reservations, and airfare. While we expect to be able to address all of your questions in the coming weeks, we will not be able to answer all of them at this time. Therefore, we will be providing regular updates via email and on the website.

We thank you in advance for your continued patience.

Hotel Reservations

If you had a reservation at the Hilton Anatole, the hotel has cancelled your reservation. You should have received an email notifying you of this on Thursday, March 12. If you did not, please call the hotel at 214-748-1200 to have them provide you with this information. If you booked a reservation at a different property, you will need to cancel the reservation on your own. For guests who paid a deposit at the Hilton Anatole, you will need to call the hotel and request the hold on your card be released; we are unfortunately unable to do so on your behalf.

Airline Reservations

Airlines have relaxed their cancellation and change fees through March 31, so please contact your airline directly and immediately regarding rebooking or cancelling.
