Dear 2020 ASCH Annual Meeting Registrant:
After much consideration and discussion,
the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) has made the difficult decision that the 62nd ASCH-ERF Annual Scientific Meeting and Workshops (ASMW)
scheduled for March 19-22, 2020 at the Nugget Casino and Hotel should
be rescheduled for August 23-26, 2020, at the same hotel.
We would like to present substantively the same program, dependent upon the availability and willingness of the faculty to reschedule. We will be in touch with the faculty shortly, and we will provide more information to you via eblasts in the coming weeks about the schedule for the meeting.
The health, safety and well-being of our attendees, speakers, and members are our highest priorities. Our team has been meeting daily to discuss recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.
Our concern is not only for the health of everyone involved, but also the quality of the event that we can deliver with the current logistical challenges we are facing. ASCH’s goal has always been to provide world-class continuing education, and in the current climate, we became concerned that we would not be able to provide the experience that you have come to expect from our organization.
In light of factors in the U.S. and around the world, it became very clear that moving the meeting to a later date was the right thing to do. The potential risks associated with a large gathering as well as the increasing travel advisories and restrictions were certainly considerations.
Please complete the registration fee form found
and tell us how you would like to handle your registration fee.
If we do not hear from you otherwise, we will transfer your fee to the rescheduled 2020 ASMW in August.
Please note that for your convenience the hotel has cancelled all reservations in our room block for this meeting. New group codes for the meeting in August along with an on-line booking link will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. You will need to make a new reservation at the hotel for the August 2020 meeting.
Thank you for your interest in our educational programming and in the society.
If you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; by telephone at 630-980-4740; or by fax at 630-351-8490.
