The High-Touch Coaching Conference has been Cancelled.

We are deeply disappointed to inform you of the cancellation of the 2022 High-Touch Coaching Conference from Thursday, July 28- Saturday, July 30, 2022, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD.  The decision to cancel was based on the recent rise in COVID cases, deaths, and hospitalizations.
 The Omicron BA.5, is a variant that is causing an estimated 78% of cases and has fueled the rapid rise in cases over this last month. This variant seems to spread more easily than previous Omicron lineages and the planned activities are highly interactive and physically engaging. The decision to cancel was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our registrants, staff, vendors, as well as the communities to which we'll return. 
We recognize that the timing of this decision may pose significant inconveniences but as a health organization, we also recognize the health and safety of our communities as the most important factor of consideration.  
Planning for rescheduling is already underway and we promise that the conference will be well worth the wait held at a time when we can convene safely.  Please stay tuned for more information and check your account for a full refund of the registration fee.

COVID-19 Precautions:

Health is more than a trending topic. It's the root of our work- it's personal. To ensure that we do our part to keep everyone safe. We require proof of vaccination and a  negative rapid antigen or PCR test* result within 24 hrs of start of the conference.

Additionally, we will follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC, local jurisdiction and the venue to ensure best practices in hosting an event of this size. Thank you for your patience and understanding as the guidelines are ever-changing.


We understand that this year brings many unknowns, and so we are offering a full refund until Wednesday, July 6th, 2022. After that date, all registration fees are non-refundable as we will have finalized our headcount for catering and materials.
