Due to the unprecedented public health crisis caused by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and current guidance from the White House and the CDC regarding public gatherings, NFDA is cancelling its Advocacy Summit scheduled for April 29-May 1. This cancellation includes all ancillary meetings and events scheduled prior to the Summit. If you have already signed up for this event, here’s what you need to know:
Advocacy Summit—April 29-May 1, The Mayflower Hotel, Washington D.C.
Currently registered attendees have two options for their registration:
- They can roll their registration over to the 2021 Advocacy Summit being held April 21-23, 2021 at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.
- Receive a refund.
Please contact your member service representative to make your selection.
If you have applied for a Funeral Service Foundation scholarship for the Advocacy Summit, applications are currently being reviewed and winners will be invited to use their scholarship for the 2021 Summit.
Additionally, it is the responsibility of all registrants who booked hotel rooms directly with The Mayflower Hotel to cancel their hotel rooms. Even if you receive an email from the hotel regarding the cancellation of your hotel room, it is strongly advised you contact the hotel to confirm it is canceled. NFDA will not be responsible for any hotel charges if attendees who booked directly don't cancel their rooms. Guests who booked directly have 72 hours prior to arrival to cancel their reservations. Call The Mayflower Hotel at 202-347-3000.
The health and safety of meeting attendees is foremost in the minds of NFDA leadership and staff during this difficult time. We appreciate your understanding. Please feel free to contact your member service representative with any questions you may have.
