Conference Refunds

March 30, 2020


Dear Conference Attendee,


First, Thank you for all that you do and your organizations in Healthcare during this epidemic. It is not easy. Prayers for all of you. 


By now you have received a letter that the 2020 NCAHQ Annual Education Conference had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. I thank you for your patience in refunding all the attendees monies.  This has been a learning curve as your treasurer and one that has brought creative ways to meet with our bank representative. 


As of last Thursday, March 26th, 2020 if you paid electronically, you should be on the lookout for a full refund. Please note that it takes several business days for this to happen.  If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us.


We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your leadership and commitment to advancing healthcare quality.


Stay distant and stay healthy,


Shellie VonCannon, MSN, RN, CPHQ

Dear Conference Attendee,


After much discussion and consideration, the NCAHQ Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 2020 NCAHQ Annual Education Conference (scheduled for March 16-17th) to this fall.  We understand the constraints on our healthcare organizations to actively manage the response to coronavirus (COVID-19) in their communities. We understand and support our members and other leaders—and the need to respond effectively to patient and community concerns.

All individuals currently registered for Conference will receive a full refund of their registration fees.  There is no further action required from registrants at this time.

Any attendee with reservations at the Washington Duke Inn will automatically receive a room reservation cancellation.

We appreciate your understanding in the postponement and look forward to networking and collaborating with you in the fall.  We will send more information for the dates, once determined with our gracious partners at the Washington Duke Inn.  Thank you for your leadership and commitment to advancing healthcare quality.


Thank you for your understanding,



Tina R Schoen, MBA, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, CPHQ
