Is USCHA being postponed?

No.  Due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, we will not convene an in-person conference.  The health and safety of conference attendees is of the utmost importance and currently there is a lack of guidelines for large in-person meetings. The 2020 USCHA conference will occur in a virtual format.  We will not be meeting in-person.

What are the new dates?

The new dates are October 19 – 21.

What is the new registration fee?

The 2020 USCHA Conference will offer free registration for the first 4,000 community/non-profit registrants.* Visit the registration page to register.

*Free registrations are for people living with HIV/AIDS, people on PrEP, activists, community organizers, students and people working or volunteering at nonprofits, community-based organizations, tribal nations, national organizations, health departments, health centers, universities, researchers, or health professionals. Per federal regulations and at the request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, NMAC cannot offer free registrations to federal employees. For federal employees and staff at for profit companies, the registration fee is $250.

Will my registration fee be refunded?

Yes.  NMAC will send an email during the week of June 22 asking if you’d like a full refund, prefer to transfer the registration fee to the 2021 USCHA or donate a portion of your payment.  Look for an email from Shanta Gray, sgray@nmac.org

Will my exhibit fee be refunded?

Yes. We will refund all exhibit fees during the week of June 22.  If you would like to reserve an exhibit booth in the virtual exhibit hall, please contact us at conferences@nmac.org. Note – this does not apply to conference sponsorships.

Are you still accepting abstracts?

Yes.  However, the conference tracks have changed.  Visit the Abstracts tab for additional information.

Are you accepting scholarship applications?

Since the 2020 conference is in a virtual format, registration is complimentary and there is no travel, we will not be awarding scholarships this year.

If I’ve submitted a scholarship application, can it be considered for the 2021 USCHA?

No. We will initiate a new scholarship process for the 2021 USCHA.

If I’ve already submitted an abstract application, will it be reviewed?

Please visit the abstract page to see the new track listing.  If you feel that your abstract is applicable to any of the new tracks, please contact Alison McKeithen at amckeithen@nmac.org so that she can assist you with selecting a new track for your existing submission.
