Cancellation Facts and Questions – AHA Leadership Summit

  • Recognizing the ongoing efforts of hospitals and health systems fighting COVID-19 in their communities while also providing care for other patient needs, the American Hospital Association (AHA) has cancelled its Leadership Summit, scheduled for July 19-21 in San Diego, and all affiliated events. During this unprecedented time, we support California’s phased reopening which does not allow large events and understand that hospital and health system leaders must remain onsite. Elements of the Leadership Summit will transition to a series of virtual events and smaller regional meetings that will take place through the fall and early 2021.

  • Anyone who has registered for the Leadership Summit will receive a full refund. No action is required. Registrants will receive confirmation receipts via email upon completion of their refund within 14 business days.
