Dear Members,

After much careful consideration, the PNWDIAI Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interest of our organization and members, to not hold an “in-person” educational training conference this year.  While the vaccination gives us hope for the future, the current limited availability and recent surge in COVID-19 cases, makes it difficult to know what the situation will look like in May.  We have also had to take into account changes in agency budgets, the availability of training funds, and limitations on training travel due to the pandemic. 

Our hope is that by making this decision now, we will save our organization money that can be applied to future conferences and other training opportunities, and allow us to fully commit our time and attention to other ways of improving our organization and benefitting our members.

We know that many of our members count on the annual training conference to help with training credits towards certification requirements.  The board is currently looking at options for providing on-line training as well as considering the possibility of a virtual conference for 2021.  We will be notifying the membership as decisions are made regarding those options and sharing any other training opportunities that present themselves in the meantime.

Wishing you continued health, safety, and all the best in the new year!

Thank you,
Heather VanDeGrift

2019-2021 PNWD-IAI President
