NPPS has made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the NPPS 200th Meeting in Seattle after carefully weighing the emerging facts as well as our duties to our members, other meeting attendees, and the local communities we as pediatricians serve. We have given the situation deep consideration and want to provide all attendees with ample opportunity to manage travel, hotel reservations, and personal schedules. We also want to respect our physicians’ need to be available to and healthy for their own patients and communities.
Preparing for the conference involves the time, talent, and creativity of a great many of our physician volunteers, speakers, exhibitors, and event partners. We’re incredibly grateful for this and deeply disappointed not to be able to hold the meeting as planned.
NPPS will automatically cancel your existing registration and refund all fees. To help support NPPS we are offering two other options.
- We are offering the opportunity to roll over your registration to either our 201st Fall Meeting, October 10-11, 2020 at the RiverPlace Hotel in Portland Oregon, or our 202nd Spring Meeting, April 24-25, 2021 at the Charter Hotel in Seattle Washington. As a thank you for your continued support, we will refund $50 from your registration back to you.
- We are offering the option to opt out of the refund and let NPPS keep the money as a donation.
Otherwise, refunds will be automatically processed back to the original form of payment. You will NOT need to contact the NPPS to initiate a refund. Please allow 14 business days for processing.
If you wish to roll over or donate your registration, please contact Becky Constantine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In closing, we want everyone to know that foremost in our decision is NPPS’s core purpose and mission: advancing pediatrics in all its phases. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we were considering the rapidly changing circumstances as well as the safety and wellbeing of not just our meeting participants and staff, but their families, colleagues, and patients.
