NYSCHP Annual Assembly 2020 Canceled

NYSCHP has been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as state and local governments. We have also been actively following travel advisories and restrictions being placed on health care providers, and hospitals, and institutions in New York and nationally. The Board of Directors has determined that it is not responsible or practical to hold the Annual Assembly.

We share the concern about the coronavirus and the questions this challenge presents. The health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, exhibitors, faculty, residents, students, technicians and other stakeholders is of paramount importance.  We want to make it very clear that we have made the decision to cancel the Annual Assembly based purely on the facts as we know them today and our responsibility and concern for all of our members and event participants.

Please refer to the FAQ document posted on the website for further information and clarification. 

The office at CHMS is working diligently to accommodate everyone’s needs and is dedicated to providing our members with the service they need. During this time, please reach out to your Chapter leadership, NYSCHP Board of Director Liaisons, or Shaun Flynn at [email protected]  for general questions.

For specific concerns directly related to Annual Assembly registration reimbursement only, please contact Rebecca Harrington at the NYSCHP office at [email protected]

On behalf of the NYSCHP Board of Directors, we thank you for your continued support and understanding during this time.
