HCB News: This year’s conference was bumped back a few weeks. What else has changed?
CT: What we’ve heard from our members, was that many employers were asking them not to travel, at least into the fall. Some are cutting funding for things like conferences. Some members, if they were to attend, risk quarantine if they go on an airplane or attend an out-of-state gathering, which could lead to unpaid leave. We didn’t want it to be a situation where only a small number of people could attend. We wanted to open it up and embrace the idea of how the association is changing. We’ve worked hard to still give people the experience they expect. The education components, the networking and family experience, coming back with great ideas and best practices to implement in your organization without missing things because your organization wouldn’t let you attend in person.

So we moved it back a few weeks just to make sure we can provide that experience. It’s more than just making things virtual, it’s about providing as full of an experience as possible.
