– The Hawaii Interscholastic Athletic Directors Association’s annual conference has been
canceled, HIADA Board President Deren Oshiro announced today.
“Due to the public health threat posed by COVID-19, all of the accompanying financial implications, and restrictions on travel and gatherings, our Executive Committee has voted to cancel the 2020 HIADA Conference.”
This year’s conference was scheduled for June 1-4 at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay on the Big Island. The event usually serves as a gathering for athletic administrators, vendors, and guests from across the state and the mainland United States.
Oshiro added, “We will explore ways to meet virtually or remotely in order to collaborate and still conduct the business that usually takes place at the conference.”
