MEETING TO BE RESCHEDULED

March 17, 2020

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the recommendation from the CDC, the IDEOM Annual Meeting will be rescheduled to the FALL and we hope to maintain our meeting location at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center.

We are doing our best to avoid conflicting dates with other conferences.

Per the CDC, "large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities." We will continue to monitor this pandemic carefully.

ANNUAL MEETING REGISTRATION: Please stay tuned for instructions regarding the annual meeting RE-REGISTRATION PROCESS. At this time, all registration for the May conference will be cancelled.

FLIGHTS: If you booked your flight with North Travel, they will cancel your flight and hold the credit for you to attend the next annual meeting.

HOTEL: If you booked a hotel room using our link, we will cancel those reservations.

IDEOM will provide updates on our website and via email as new information becomes available.

We recommend that you frequently check public health resources for additional information to help keep you safe and healthy:

We hope you all stay healthy during this time, and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
