TRALA's 2020 Annual Meeting Update

Thank you for your patience and understanding while TRALA leadership and staff have closely monitored the COVID-19 situation. 
TRALA's Board of Directors held an emergency call today and after thoughtful deliberation, a decision was made to reschedule TRALA's 2020 Annual Meeting that would have taken place March 29-April 1 in Bonita Springs, Florida.  As indicated in our previous message, the health, safety and well-being of the TRALA membership is our highest priority. There was a clear need to take action after reviewing reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this week's announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring a pandemic, and seeing the numerous institutional travel restrictions and ever-increasing numbers of confirmed cases.

Please look for additional communication from TRALA staff in the next few weeks that will provide information on the new dates for TRALA's 2020 Annual Meeting and how we will handle existing registrations. You do not have to cancel your registration at this time given the meeting has been postponed.

It is important to remember that you must contact the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point by March 23 to cancel your existing hotel reservation. TRALA is not responsible for hotel reservations as individual or corporate credit cards were used to reserve rooms. The hotel's phone number is (239) 444-1234.

We ask for your patience as we work diligently to address questions and provide additional information to all who are impacted by this change. If you need immediate assistance, please contact Shannon Davison at or Jennylynne Bowman at
