Covid 19 Updates

Posted: March 16, 2020

Due to the current pandemic crisis, OSMA is following the CDC guidelines and has decided to cancel our annual conference that was scheduled for April 16-18.


We understand any frustration you might have but feel this is the right decision considering the circumstances.

If you have a reservation at the hotel, Courtyard by Marriott, please cancel your reservation as they will not be automatically canceled.

Please do not hesitate to reach out via the contact us page.
