2020 HDA Business and Leadership Conference Canceled

Like your organizations, HDA has continued to monitor developments related to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, particularly as it relates to our upcoming conferences. Given widespread “stay-at-home” orders across country, including in the Commonwealth of Virginia (where HDA is headquartered) and the State of Colorado, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Business and Leadership Conference on June 7–10 in Colorado Springs. With the continuing concerns about the scope of the virus in the U.S., we felt we could not proceed with a large corporate gathering at this time. 

Thanks go to our meeting registrants, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for their participation and support. While some aspects of the program will move to next year’s event, we are evaluating alternative approaches to hosting some of the functions of this meeting at another HDA event held later this fall. 

We appreciate your understanding and kindly ask for your patience as we process conference refunds. The Broadmoor is currently closed until May 22; we have asked the hotel to automatically cancel all room reservations, and they will provide deposit refunds. If you have any questions, please contact Brooke Naylor at

We recognize that this has been an uncertain time as the country collectively grapples with this public health crisis. On behalf of all of us at HDA, we hope you and your families are staying well.
