IMA has been assessing the COVID-19 situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak. Our number one priority remains with our social responsibility for the safety of our members, speakers, and partners.
Due to many unknowns about the virus including how it is contracted and spread, out of caution, all IMA events scheduled between now and April 30 must be cancelled. This includes all chapter and council conferences, training events and meetings.
The reasoning behind the event cancellations is similar to the approach being taken by companies nationally and globally in relation to guidance on travel and attendance at industry events. The last thing we want to do is put members and/or attendees at any of our events, and anyone they come in contact with, at risk and as such, we are taking these precautions.
