During these extraordinary times, we are facing an unprecedented challenge with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We place a premium on the health and well-being of our membership, departments, board members, and the community.

Due to concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to cancel our spring 2020 educational conference at this time. More details in the rescheduling of the event will be forthcoming after the board has had some time to discuss and decide what is in the best interest for the organization. 

For those who have made hotel reservations, you will need to contact the hotel and cancel that reservation. The hotel will cancel the reservations (no fee charged). When the conference is rescheduled, registrants will need to make new reservations.

All registered attendees will be moved to the new fall date. Those that have already payed, those payments will stay for the new date.

If you would like to cancel your registration to the conference, please contact us at kansasdivisioniai@gmail.com. Once registration is canceled a refund will be issued if you have already payed.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this decision.

Thank you all and take care,

Andrea Reed, President

Kansas Division of the IAI
