Connex Board Chair & CEO

ANNOUNCEMENT: March 24, 2020 3:00 pm (CDT)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated effects across our country, along with extensive deliberations and consideration by the Connex Board of Directors & Staff, we are unable to move forward with CONNEX2020. There is no suitable resort availability found to reschedule this year's National Conference therefore, our next conference will be held April 19-21, 2021 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD (Washington D.C. area).

"The health and safety of our members, our communities and staff are of utmost importance. This was not an easy decision, but is supported by all of us, that moving forward to the 2021 conference is the best option to ensure a successful event for our attendees, speakers, and sponsors,” said Myriah Kingen, Director of Facilities Management, DaVita Kidney Care and Connex Board Chair.

”Please be patient as the Connex team continues to work with our partners to streamline new processes to assist you as quickly and efficiently as possible,” Bill Yanek, Connex CEO.
All registration fees, ticket fees, additional delegate fees, and hotel room deposits (if you booked through our official housing partner MCI) will automatically be refunded.
Exhibitors/Sponsors – The Connex Events Team will be contacting you starting April 1 to discuss refunds or transferring your funds forward to CONNEX2021 and selecting your new booth space. 
Please watch your email and for updates on other educational and networking opportunities later in 2020!



We continue to closely review all guidance from global, federal and local health authorities to implement what is needed for the good of CONNEX2020 and our industry.
