IMPORTANT Message Regarding HITEC's Spring Leadership Summit
Friday, March 6, 2020
Posted by: Salina Rivera
Dear HITEC Leaders,
We regret to inform you that due to growing concerns regarding the coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel HITEC’s Spring Leadership Summit originally scheduled for March 23-25th. For the past two weeks, our Executive Committee, our board of Directors and our leadership have been in regular contact and deliberated on this matter. Our top priority is and always will be the health and safety of our members, our team and our partner community.
We are working with the McKesson Corporation to schedule our Fall Leadership Summit at their headquarters in Irving, Texas.
Over the course of this past week, 22 of our corporate partners and several of our confirmed speakers have canceled their participation in our Spring Leadership Summit due to travel restrictions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. However, given the cancellations and with participants scheduled to travel from 23 different states and five different countries, we feel that, for the health and safety of our members, canceling our summit is the appropriate response.
If you booked your hotel room through our hotel block, you should be able to cancel your reservation without having to pay a cancellation fee (cancellations must take place 72 hours prior to reservation arrival date).
We look forward to being back in Irving, Texas in the fall and we will share those new dates once confirmed in the weeks to come. We look forward to seeing you all at our HITEC Summer Leadership Summit hosted by Capital One in Plano, Texas, August 11-13.
We share your disappointment and we thank you for your understanding and continued support. We will communicate additional details shortly.
Guillermo Diaz Jr.
