2020 NHA Symposium Cancellation Announcement
To our valued NHA Members, Supporters, and Industry Partners:
        In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and ensuing national, state, and local guidance and precautionary measures put in place and that continue to unfold, the 2020 NHA Symposium and all associated activities at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel from 11-15 May have been cancelled. This includes the events scheduled at Topgolf Virginia Beach and O’Connor Brewing Company in downtown Norfolk. The National State of Emergency, DoD Travel Ban, and CDC Guidelines all precluded execution and participation in Symposium by our Military Members (Active & Reserve), Retirees, Civilians, and Industry Partners.
Our priorities remain the safety and well-being of our members and supporters, their families, industry partners, and the communities in which we all live and work. 
       We are working with members, supporters, and industry partners to reimburse current registrations and exhibit / sponsorship commitments already made to NHA. NHA will be in contact with each of you within the next week to complete this action and where possible, offer up opportunities for members, supporters, and industry partners to consider at the various Regions, at the 2020 Gulf Coast Fleet Fly-In (Pensacola, FL / 19-23 October), and at the 2021 NHA Symposium (Viejas Casino & Resort in San Diego, CA / 10-14 May).
NHA regrets taking this action but knows it is the responsible thing to do.
We are leaning in with all of you to do our part to beat this national and global crisis.
Wishing that each of you and your families remain healthy and safe!
Respectfully,
RADM Pat McGrath, USN (Ret.)
Chairman, Board of Directors
