RE: IAAO Weekly Update
Some of us have spent nearly two months working from home, while others haven’t missed more than a day or two in the office. Regardless, we are all probably ready for the day we can return to ‘normal.’
Despite all the disruptions our world has seen, IAAO persists and moves boldly forward.
Courses/Webinars – IAAO continues releasing new materials and assisting instructors and coordinators in moving in-person classes to a live-online option. Check out the IAAO website for an updated list of upcoming classes. In addition, we are pleased that IAAO is offering jurisdictions a 10% discount on online and virtual courses, if you prepay for them by June 15. The course(s) can be taken up to one year after the date of purchase. Contact Ashley Lathrop at for more information.
More than 900 people signed up for this week’s webinar, Assessing COVID-19, and if you missed it the webinar is now available through the IAAO store, at no charge. Look for more webinars coming soon!
Board meeting – The IAAO Board of Directors held our very first virtual meeting last Friday. All members of the Board connected via Zoom with the IAAO Headquarters team to conduct our quarterly meeting. While virtual meetings will never replace in-person meetings, with many new technologies available, we were able to meet successfully and achieve a great deal. Starting today, look on the website for four draft documents out for 30-day exposure. There are two draft revised standards, amendments to the Bylaws, and amendments to the Code of Ethics.
IAAO – The IAAO office remains closed under a Stay at Home Order issued by the city of Kansas City, Missouri. Your headquarters team continues to work remotely, responding to members' questions and working on upcoming programs and events.
Events – Planning continues for the 2020 IAAO Annual Conference, Aug. 30 – Sept. 2, in Denver. The IAAO headquarters team is monitoring the situation in Denver and will decide by the end of June what the conference format will be. Whether it is held in person, virtually, or a hybrid version of both – we WILL have a conference this year! We had so many excellent presentation topics submitted, and we are really looking forward to all of them!
We have all learned a great deal over the past couple of months, and we will use that knowledge to continue improving our products and services as we move together into this new world.
Stay strong and stay healthy!
