IEDC Novel Coronavirus Response


On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus a global health emergency. The virus, now known as COVID-19, was first identified in January in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Confirmed cases are concentrated in China but have spread throughout Asia and more recently into Europe and other regions, including a small number in the United States and Canada.

Concern for member health and safety, airline restrictions, and travel warnings are affecting association global operations and conferences. These resources are compiled here to help you stay informed on this rapidly evolving situation.

NOVEL CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 IMPACT ON SCHEDULED IEDC PROGRAMS

IEDC continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. We understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting our members.

Absent federal travel restrictions and/or local, state, or regional decisions to close venues, IEDC has not canceled any of its meetings. At these events, we commit to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage attendees to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. If there are any changes to event schedules, we will provide information to registrants about virtual options that may be available and/or other specific details.

Our satisfaction guarantees and our refund, substitution, cancellation, and postponement policies remain in place for your benefit.
