We look forward to welcoming you to Portland, Oregon for the NHRMA Spring HR Academy, being held on April 6-8, 2020. We are confirming our commitment to hold the HR Academy as scheduled.


NHRMA is aware of growing concerns around the spread of COVID-19 and is monitoring developments related to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and potential impact on travel to the Academy in Portland. The Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Airport is currently operating normally, and our current plan is to hold the Spring HR Academy as scheduled. Any changes to the venues' operating status and/or related travel restrictions will be evaluated immediately and changes to the Academy will be communicated to all registered attendees and posted here as soon as those decisions have been made.


Our thoughts and concern are with those affected in China and globally.
