Healthcare Governance Conference

2020 Healthcare Governance Conference and COVID-19

Texas Healthcare Trustees’ board of directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Healthcare Governance Conference due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19. Our priority is the health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, corporate sponsors and exhibitors. We know this is disappointing; however, at this time we cannot guarantee a safe learning environment for conference participants and, as an organization that serves health care trustees and professionals, we have a great responsibility to our communities to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about the 2020 Healthcare Governance Conference cancellation. We will be in touch with registrants, presenters and all members regarding conference registration, hotel reservations, virtual education offerings and sponsorship opportunities for the remainder of 2020.

If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please contact THT Interim Director, Amy Eskew, at
