2020 Osher Institutes National Conference

2020 Osher Institutes National Conference

April 20 - 22, 2020

Update March 10th, Due to the rapid escalation of the COVID-19 Virus, university travel restrictions, and foremost, our concern for participants – many within the CDC defined higher risk population for serious illness from the virus – we regret to announce that we are postponing the 2020 Osher Institutes National Conference. This decision was made in close collaboration with The Bernard Osher Foundation. We hold great hope that a later date will be available for the Conference. When determined, the announcement of a new date will be made to Osher Institute directors and through direct email to all of those previously registered for the April Conference.

Osher Institute National Conferences are held every 18 months. They provide an invitation-only opportunity for learning and networking for two representatives from each of the 124 Institutes. The 2020 Osher Institutes National Conference will be held April 20-22, 2020 at the well-appointed conference facilities of the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay located on the waterfront in Tampa, FL.

The National Resource Center for Osher Institutes will make your room reservations, please do not contact the hotel to make your own arrangements. Check-in for your overnight accommodations will be held at the front desk of the Grand Hyatt hotel in your name and each delegate will have single private accommodations. All attendees are required to present a credit card at check-in for any incidental charges (telephone, spa, gift shop, copying expenses, dry cleaning, etc.) or additional overnight room stays outside of the two conference nights (April 20th and 21st). These costs will be posted to your credit card at the conclusion of your stay.
