The Western Region of IPMA-HR is sad to inform you that due to the sudden, dramatic, and unexpected impact of COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s conference to be held at Disneyland has been cancelled. Our members’ health is much more important than a conference. Here is some key information for you to know:

Conference Refunds

  • Payments made by credit card on or after 10/15/2019 will be refunded to the credit card initially used.  These refunds will be processed by 04/15/2020.  
  • Payments made by check, or credit card payments made prior to 10/15/2019, will be refunded by check.  The Region Treasurer will be in contact for those individuals to ensure the refund is mailed to the correct person/address.  These refunds will be processed by 05/01/2020.  
  • There are a few checks that were not yet deposited by the Region.  Those individuals/organizations will be contacted to discuss their preferred resolution.  

Hotel Reservations

Disney will refund the first night deposit for all attendees who had booked rooms in the next 2-3 business days. These charges will be placed back on the credit cards that were used to book the room.

2021 Conference

The 2021 conference will be held May 9-12 at the Downtown Hilton in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Christine Hoffmann and Mary Rowe are already hard at work on this conference and it should be an amazing event!

2022 Conference

We invite you to “Be Our Guest” as we will triumphantly return to Disneyland May 2-5 2022! Disney has agreed to keep our room rates the same as they were going to be this year and it will truly be a magical time!

Many thanks to our Conference Chairs and Committee for their hard work with this year’s conference. We appreciate our committed sponsors and speakers and certainly hope to see them in the future. If you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to direct them to me. None of us anticipated an event like this happening. Please follow CDC guidelines, keep yourselves safe, and I hope to see you at either the IPMA-HR International Conference in Baltimore this fall or in Portland for the Western Region IPMA-HR conference next year.
