You are here: GMDI Conference 2020

Update from the 2020 Conference Planning Committee

Thank you to our members, colleagues and sponsors for your flexibility and understanding as we dealt with the cancellation of the 2020 Conference in Austin due to the COVID 19 pandemic.  It was disappointing but necessary and the committee is grateful for the support we received from everyone involved.

We are pleased to announce that the conference will be rescheduled for Spring 2021.

Until then, we are working with the GMDI Education and Research Committees to provide some of the originally planned conference content as webinars over the next several month.  Stay tuned to GMDI for more announcements.  We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.

GMDI announces cancellation of the 2020 GMDI Conference

On March 14, 2020 the Mayor of the City of Austin issued an Order prohibiting gatherings of 250 or more people effective March 15-May 1, 2020. 

GMDI has been continuously monitoring the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization on the spread of the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19.  In addition to restrictions on international and domestic travel; GMDI leadership had become aware of a rapidly increasing number of travel bans being imposed on employees by healthcare institutions and companies across the US, along with rising concerns that travel to large group gatherings is not judicious from a public and personal health perspective. The decision to cancel the conference was under discussion at the time the Mayor’s Order was issued.

The GMDI Conference Planning Committee and Board of Directors share your disappointment that the conference is cancelled, but the health and safety of our attendees and their families is of utmost importance.  Planning for our biennial conference has been ongoing for almost 2 years.  Over the next weeks we will actively consider all options for delivering this important educational content, including rescheduling the meeting and/or offering content digitally. 

This is an unprecedented situation and GMDI asks your patience and understanding as we work through the complex logistics of this difficult circumstance.   We ask that you not email or call the GMDI office while we are working through the details.  

Individuals who are already registered for the conference, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors will be receiving additional information by email shortly.

We will continue to post information to this website as it becomes available.
