Dear STFM Colleagues,
As you experience unprecedented changes in your daily lives, STFM is proud to read the stories of the amazing work and leadership our family physicians are providing to prepare and manage this crisis. You are an inspiration for your co-workers, learners, and STFM colleagues.
We have heard from many members who are excited about the decision to reschedule the Annual Spring Conference. Together, we will get through this historic time. We look forward to the collaboration and discovery that will take place at the conference. Thank you for all you are doing on behalf of family medicine, our communities, and our country.
NEW CONFERENCE DATES
The 2020 STFM Annual Spring Conference is now scheduled for August 24-28, 2020 at the Grand and Little America Hotels in Salt Lake City, Utah. We feel fortunate to have found alternative dates at these hotels, so STFM can offer an in-person experience for our members.
If you have NOT cancelled your Spring conference registration, review the two options below:
- If you do not plan to attend the August meeting, request a full refund of your previously paid conference registration fees by following these steps. Refunds must be requested by July 31, 2020.
- If you plan to attend the August meeting, you are all set. Staff will apply your previously paid registration fee to the August meeting.
If you cancelled your Spring conference registration and received a 50% refund, STFM staff will refund the remaining portion of the registration fee automatically. The refund will be made in the same manner the registration was paid (ex. credit card or check). You should receive your refund by April 8.
If you had not yet registered for the May conference and would like to attend the rescheduled August 24-28 conference, registration will open in just a few weeks. We will notify you through email, social media, and the STFM web site when registration is open.
Beginning March 19, all hotel reservations made for the May 2-6, 2020 conference (within the STFM block) will be cancelled on your behalf without charges or penalties. Please note that the hotel will not be sending email cancellations, since the process would require them to do each one manually.
If you plan to attend the August 24-28, 2020 Annual Conference and have not yet cancelled your flight for the May 2-6, 2020 conference, you may be able to exchange your flight and avoid cancellation fees.
