We at Cleveland SHRM are monitoring all of our upcoming events in relation to COVID-19, which includes NOHRC 20/20.

NOHRC 20/20 is still taking place as scheduled. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 developments, and at this point, will not be cancelling NOHRC 20/20. Cleveland SHRM has developed a task force and response plan for NOHRC 20/20 using the World Health Organization guidelines for risk assessment, event safety and attendee communication.CSHRM leadership continues to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation as updated by the CDC daily, in conjunction with the City of Cleveland and Huntington Convention Center, the location of NOHRC 20/20. The health, safety and well-being of our members and meeting attendees is our top priority.

If the recommendations from public health officials change in any way, we will take immediate and appropriate steps for the safety of our volunteers, attendees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, and students.

Lastly, we have partnered with the Huntington Convention Center (ASM Group) to ensure the health, safety and well-being of everyone involved. Please see below for their official statement:

"At ASM Global, we are closely monitoring the latest developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) globally and any potential impact it may have on our day-to-day operations. The health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. Through public health organizations such as the CDC and WHO, we are staying abreast of the latest updates and developments as they occur. Any actions we take will be consistent with guidelines from these agencies and local health department officials. We encourage clients and team members to utilize personal best practices per CDC guidelines. The Huntington Convention Center utilizes a High Touch Surfaces protocol for sterilization of public spaces."
