CUPA-HR’s Spring Conferences Cancelled
Due to Growing Threat Posed by COVID-19

Please check back often for updates. Event registrants will be notified directly of any new developments.

CUPA-HR’s 2020 spring conferences in Savannah and Minneapolis have been cancelled due to the growing threat posed by the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. As an alternative, CUPA-HR will host a virtual conference taking place April 20-21. In addition, the preconference DataOnDemand (DOD) Labs will be moved to a digital format, taking place March 30 and April 15.

CUPA-HR has been closely monitoring coronavirus developments and working with our hotel partners to ensure that every precaution is being taken for our 2020 conferences. Our first priority, as always, is the safety and well-being of our attendees, speakers, corporate partners and staff.

However, the coronavirus shows no signs of slowing in the near future, and an increasing number of institutions have decided to restrict travel. Furthermore, it is critically important for our members, many of whom are on the front lines of institutional planning and response, to be on their campuses as developments unfold.

Those who are registered for the spring conference will receive registration refund information via email from CUPA-HR. These individuals will need to cancel their own hotel and travel reservations.

We have published an event cancellation FAQ. Please direct additional questions to memberservice@cupahr.org.

CUPA-HR Statement on the Coronavirus COVID-19

Please check back often for updates. Event registrants will be notified directly of any new developments.

CUPA-HR is closely monitoring coronavirus developments. We are also working with our hotel partners to ensure that contingency plans are in place. Our goal — as always — is to offer an outstanding professional development experience, in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.

At this point, based on information published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CUPA-HR is proceeding with its 2020 conferences as scheduled. However, this situation is constantly evolving. We will continue to monitor developments and let you know if our decisions change.

We encourage conference registrants to familiarize themselves with CUPA-HR’s conference cancellation policies and to consider purchasing trip cancellation or trip interruption insurance ahead of travel.
