Due to unforeseen circumstances, the FRHA Board has made the decision to cancel the conference on October 10th-11th, 2023. It was a very tough decision, but ultimately, it is in the best interest of the association. We do intend to reschedule this conference in early 2024, and hope to have your support at that time as well. Registrants have been notified via email regarding their registration. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
