NACHC Announces the Cancellation of the 2020 Policy & Issues Forum

After a thorough examination of the widespread health risks posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to the American public, the NACHC 2020 Policy & Issues (P&I) Forum in Washington, D.C. has been cancelled. All registration fees (in-person and virtual) will be refunded.

Please know that, like many other major health care organizations that have cancelled conferences in recent days out of concerns surrounding COVID-19, we did not make this decision lightly. The health and safety of our members, staff, vendors, partners, and all frontline providers who provide health care in our communities is a top priority, and thus we have taken this proactive step. It is in that spirit we wish everyone well going forward as we do our part in addressing the country’s major public health crisis.

As many of you know, there are critically important issues we face, such as the need for long-term, stable funding, and an increase in funding for our workforce programs, the effect of state waivers and public charge rules on health centers and patients, and now COVID-19. Shortly we will be asking you to take concrete actions with your state and local representatives to advocate on these issues. FAQs and more information here.


NACHC Conference Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. NACHC will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. This also includes inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter
and other online media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of NACHC.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately.

NACHC is a nonpartisan and noncommercial organization. Conference speaker presentations may not necessarily reflect the views of NACHC and the presence of vendors, exhibitors and sponsors does not constitute endorsement of their respective products or services.
