Message From Your Chapter President





Dear ACMA Florida Chapter Conference Attendee:

 After careful evaluation and consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACMA Florida Chapter has made the decision to shift our 17th Annual Case Management and Transitions of Care Conference to a virtual format. It is possible the virtual conference will not take place on the same date that the in-person event was scheduled. We will send information as it comes available and how to access the virtual event in another communication.

 Public health is our highest priority and we understand how critical you are to your organizations and the communities you serve. We will be offering a virtual option for all attendees that will include the opportunity to access the same educational content, earn CE credit, learn about the latest innovations in case management from our exhibitors and share knowledge with your peers. Your current registration will be automatically transferred to the virtual conference.

We ask for your patience as we review options for live and on-demand educational offerings. Specific agenda and detailed virtual conference information will be sent via email as soon as they are confirmed.

Please note that you are responsible for canceling or modifying any hotel and travel arrangements directly. Contact the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate by calling 1-800-THE-OMNI. Thank you for continuing to support the case management profession and we look forward to creating a new experience for our attendees.

Best Regards,

Philicity and Team
