2020 OHA Convention & Trade Show

Nov. 11-13, 2020

101st OHA Convention & Trade Show going virtual  

Because the first annual convention was actually the beginning of the Oklahoma Hospital Association we know today, OHA has determined we want to continue this important piece of the life of the Association. The virtual convention will be held live on demand on the original days the live event was scheduled, Nov. 11-13.  Recorded sessions will be available to registrants for 30 days following the event.

Very appropriate for 2020, the theme is “Together We Can.”

Even though the meeting rooms may look a little different and you won’t be able to shake hands or hug a friend, we promise you an amazing experience, including pearls of wisdom to use in
your daily life.
