After much discussion and consideration, the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organization (SDAHO) leadership, in collaboration with the SDAHO Board of Trustees, have decided to cancel the in-person 2021 SDAHO Annual Convention, September 22-24 in Sioux Falls, SD. We know that our Annual Convention is an important event for our members, exhibitors, affiliates, and other meeting participants. However, the safety of our meeting participants will always be our first priority. In addition to safety, we also understand the current challenges our members are facing, which may make it difficult to send staff to the event. During this unprecedented time, we are committed to supporting you and your colleagues as you care for your patients and residents.
