To Our IPMA Partners, Sponsors, Government Staff, and Friends:
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that we reach out to each of you and communicate our deep care and support. Your health and safety are of utmost concern to our organization. As the situation rapidly evolves, the IPMA is taking steps to protect Board Members, our external partners, our Sponsors, and all of those who have come to know IPMA as a leader in government educational opportunities.
IPMA Events – In order to protect those we work with and our partners, the decision was made to cancel several of our premiere events. This is a first for our organization, as even during the financial downturn in 2008, we were able to provide quality opportunities to gather, learn and share.
The May 2020 FORUM – Following our Governor’s and the President’s request of Shelter in Place and maintain Social Distancing, the FORUM is canceled and will not be rescheduled. Although we have looked for new location opportunities, the future of large gatherings is uncertain and so we have decided to not hold this event.
Individual PD Events – Currently, all future PD events are on hold until further notice. The IPMA Professional Development Committee is researching potential virtual learning opportunities and will share information as soon as possible.
Executive Seminar – The IPMA September 2020 Executive Seminar is still moving forward, and if changes are necessary, we will inform all sponsors and guests as quickly as possible.
To each of our Partners, Sponsors, Government Staff, and Friends impacted by COVID-19, our thoughts are with you. Now is the time to lean on one another for support and resources, as we navigate through these difficult circumstances together. Thank you all for your continued support. The IPMA is looking forward to working with all of you in the near future.
Scott West, IPMA Chair
