ISOA Response to COVID-19
Sunday, March 15, 2020
I hope this letter finds you well, given the current state of affairs. For our Association, we have never experienced this type of challenge before, caused by COVID-19, aka the Coronavirus. Our primary focus is always to support you and your company, actively working to ensure your business success. We do that through our content-rich events, both large and small, in the Washington, DC region and overseas. And we do it via our electronic communications and our in-person assistance to you, be it with government officials or between ISOA member companies.
Due to this epidemic (local), now possibly turning into a pandemic (worldwide) of the Coronavirus, ISOA postponed our Europe Conference in Stuttgart, which will hopefully occur in September combined with the Africa Conference. We have just now postponed our annual Awards Dinner that was to be held on June 10 until this fall, most likely to be held in conjunction with the Annual Summit in November. And we have cancelled the Golf Tournament that was also to be held on June 10.
We remain committed to providing you strong value, as an ISOA member, and to you as a prospective member company, if you have not joined up yet. As such, we will begin providing weekly webinars on relevant topics to you and your business. Given the reduction of in-person meetings due to the Coronavirus, these webinars will allow you to participate in these sessions from your office and home workstations. These sessions will be no-charge for ISOA member companies. Please stay tuned for our upcoming announcements.
I sincerely wish you the best.
President and Executive Director
