As the Governor’s Hurricane Conference Planning Committees are gearing up for the 2021 conference, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will continue to assess and monitor the virus on a month-to-month basis. Based on the conditions in 2021, the GHC will determine if it’s necessary to reduce the number of attendees in order to keep everyone safe. 

We are committed to following all CDC Guidelines, State and local emergency orders during the conference.  We hope you will join us and look forward to welcoming you.

On behalf of the Governor’s Hurricane Conference Board of Directors, we would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time. The COVID-19 threat has made it impossible to safely hold the 2020 Governor’s Hurricane Conference May 17-22.

We simply cannot put our attendees’ health & safety at risk ahead of the 2020 hurricane season as these are Florida’s first-line responders, healthcare administrators and emergency management personnel.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding and we hope to see each of you at the 2021 GHC
in West Palm Beach, May 16-21.

The GHC will be making a decision within the next week regarding the 2020 conference scheduled in May. These are unfortunate circumstances and the last thing we want to do is cancel. However, the health and safety of our attendees and the public will take priority. If the decision is to cancel, registered attendees do not need to request a refund. All registered attendees will receive a refund. We simply ask for your patience during this time. 

We will keep everyone posted as soon as a decision has been reached.

The GHC continues to monitor the evolving COVID-19. As information is updated daily, we will continue to make our attendees health and safety our top priority. Any decision will not be made lightly nor in haste. We will continue to keep our GHC family updated throughout the decision making.

The 2020 Governor’s Hurricane Conference will take place as scheduled! The Board of Directors and GHC staff are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19.  We are working closely with our hotels and venues to ensure appropriate cleaning and sanitizing services are met based on the CDC guidelines.  The GHC will continue to keep you updated and informed throughout this process.
