Dear IIAAA Members, Presenters, Sponsors, and Vendors:
IIAAA has been monitoring the spread of COVID – 19 and its impact on the state and country events with one key factor in mind: health and safety of our members, meeting attendees, exhibitors, and staff.
Given that the World Health Organization officially deemed this a pandemic, and in light of many school districts declaring an emergency along with associated closures and curtailments of normal activities and in light of the governor’s request to cancel any gatherings of more than 250 people, it is impossible for IIAAA to hold the conference as planned. Therefore, for the safety of all involved, the IIAAA Executive Council has decided to cancel this year’s annual conference. This decision was not an easy one. Please be assured IIAAA made this decision acting in an abundance of caution.
IIAAA will continue to communicate with all of you regularly as the Association forges the path forward and ask your patience in that process. A few answers that are available immediately;
Conference Reimbursement: All attendees and vendors will receive reimbursement of conference registration fees and/or LTI course fees. While we request your patience, it is our plan to have refunds completed by late April via Brad Holsinger. All refund checks will be made out to your school(s).
For conference attendees and exhibitors that booked hotel rooms: If you booked a hotel room, you will need to communicate with the Marriott Hotel and cancel your own reservation. The IIAAA is unable to do this on your behalf. Please do this in a timely manner to avoid cancellation fees.
Thank you to all of you who have communicated with us to express your support and thoughts. Every conversation has been helpful and deeply appreciated. Let’s continue to work together through this pandemic and into even greater success in the future. Be safe and stay healthy.
