In-Person Registration is Closed. Register Virtually!

Due to overwhelming response, the 2023 Preparedness Summit has reached maximum capacity and in-person registration is closed. 

If you would like to be added to a waitlist to attend in-person, complete this form. The waitlist is not a guarantee of registration, so we encourage you to register virtually.

3/29/2023: There are currently over 200 registrants waitlisted.  NACCHO anticipates contacting waitlisted individuals in the order that they appear on the waitlist only if substantial number of cancellations occur between now and the start of the conference.  To date there have been very minimal cancellations; we do not anticipate contacting anyone on the waitlist with registration still currently above allowed on-site capacity. 

- There will be no walk-in/on-site registration at the Preparedness Summit -

Virtual registration is still open!

Virtual content, including livestream and virtual-only sessions, will be recorded and available for 90 days post conference for both in-person and virtual registrants.
