Due to the Presidential Declaration of a National Emergency, along with Governor Brian Kemp’s Public Health Emergency Declaration, the 2020 GPHA Annual Meeting & Conference, scheduled for May 6-8, 2020 in Jekyll Island, GA has been cancelled. We regret this decision as we realize the benefits of networking and learning provided by the event. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
The Association will be refunding registration fees already paid for general conference registration. A business meeting for the Association will be scheduled for later this year. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Exhibitors who have already registered for the 2020 conference will be given the option of a refund, or allowing their paid registration to be applied toward the 2021 GPHA Annual Meeting & Conference to be held in Jekyll Island, GA.
