Tri-State Conference Canceled
The committee chairs of the Tri-State AHIMA Conference want to thank you for your interest in the conference that was scheduled to be held in May of 2021. Like you, we were excited and looking forward to hearing the speakers and networking with one another. However, with the continued updates concerning the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the committee has decided to cancel this conference.
The health and well-being of our members, speakers, vendors, and guests are our first priority. This decision was made with the best interest of all of you in mind.
For those of you who have registered and have already paid for this conference, we are working with KnowledgeConnex to refund your registration fees. You should be seeing a refund over the following few weeks.
When requesting your refund please note the cancellation information. Participants please reach out to the board contact Suzanne Landry at email@example.com with any specific instructions regarding refunds (i.e., make check out to them versus employer). Please also note that a 10% processing fee will be deducted.
Hotel and Flight Reservations:
If you have made an overnight room reservation, please be sure to contact the hotel to cancel those reservations. If you have made flight reservations, please work directly with your airline. Many airlines are allowing passengers to change or reschedule flights. Please review your airline’s COVID-19 cancellation policy.
Should you have any questions that we did not address here, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
We are looking to schedule a Tri-State AHIMA Conference in 2022. As soon as we have more information on that, we will be posting it on our state websites.
Take care and be well,
Tri-State AHIMA Conference Committee

Tri-State Meeting Postponed Until 2021
Greetings TriState Attendee!
We are happy to announce that Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont AHIMA groups have decided to move ahead with the new TriState AHIMA Conference.
We felt strongly having our first TriState as an “in-person” conference is of primary importance. As a result, we are moving the TriState Conference to May 16-18, 2021.
The location of Mills Falls on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, NH remains the same.
Every attendee currently signed up to participate in 2020 has had their registration automatically credited to the 2021 Conference.
Additionally, if you had hotel reservations, Mills Falls has automatically moved your reservation to our new date in May 2021.
If you are unable to participate and wish to cancel your registration, please email Angelique Sibulkin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, there will be a 10% cancellation fee incurred.
We look forward to seeing you all May 16-18, 2021 in Meredith, NH!
We wish you all a safe and healthy 2020,
The TriState Team
