National Events are held throughout the country and Canada! 100’s of people fly from all over to attend. These events are a great way to get out, have fun and meet others in the same boat! They are also a great way to meet other HWerks members! Yes, everybody there will have herpes and or HPV!
Typically, a National Event is 3 days (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at a hotel and has an event fee that includes some food, snacks, beverages…etc. These events are not run by HWerks but rather by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The hotel does NOT know what the group is about for the privacy of the group. It is also expected to stay that way. They just see a great group of people there to have fun for the weekend.
As soon as the event websites are available, they will be posted here. Each event is different so please visit the event website for more details. Be sure to book your room early as room blocks can sell out quickly
Warning: If you go to one event, you will be hooked!
