Dear SCIP Members and Sponsors:
When COVID-19 first began to impact our world and eventually our community, our Board held out hope to still have our two-day education event in August. Eventually we moved the event to November. There are many variables that are out of our control, potentially impacting the health and welfare of our attendees. The safety of our members and our sponsors has always been our top concern and in the wake of COVID-19 and its continued impacts, we must stay dedicated to upholding that commitment.
At the June Board meeting the Board decided to cancel this year’s face to face meeting. Per the SCIP bylaws we are required to have a business meeting each year. We have decided to have a virtual business meeting. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday November 17, 2020 at 12PM EST/9:00AM PST.
The format of the meeting is still being refined. We intend to have the business portion of the meeting, two education sessions, and an open forum. As of now we intend to use Zoom to conduct the meeting.
We are planning the two-day face to face meeting for June 14 and 15, 2021. We will continue to update you as plans are confirmed for both the Virtual meeting and the face to face meeting. The Board is grateful for your support, and we look forward to the time when we can meet in person again.
Neil Davison, RA, SCIP, FCSI, CCS, CCCA
