The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) has canceled the HLAA2020 Convention originally scheduled for June 18-21, 2020 in New Orleans, according to a email sent by Executive Director Barbara Kelley.

According to the email, registration fees will be refunded or can be turned into a donation to support the organization’s programs; please let HLAA know your choice by April 17.

In the letter, Kelley says:

I want to thank our attendees, exhibitors, corporate partners, speakers, chapter and state leaders, and Board members for your patience and support while I was working with the New Orleans Marriott on a contingency. Cancelling this event is a disappointment for our community, but an absolute necessity to protect our health and help our country fight this pandemic. 

HLAA plans to upload some of the 2020 Convention’s content online in June.
