As you know, i2i has been assessing the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to our ability to host our 2020 Spring Conference scheduled for June 15-16 in Raleigh. The i2i Board and staff recently made the decision to cancel the 2020 Spring Conference. This decision was based on two factors. First, we believe social distancing will remain an important factor in preventing the spread of COVID-19 for several months, thus a conference or large gathering is not feasible. In addition, all of you are working in one way or another to provide services and address the needs of people in your communities at this crucial time, and i2i understands that your available resources (time, staff, finances) must be directed towards consumers, service delivery, and maintaining the integrity of your own organizations and staffing.
While we are saddened by not being able to see all of you in June, we are cautiously optimistic that the December 2-4, 2020 Pinehurst conference could potentially serve as a healthy and positive way to end 2020. We will keep you informed as plans for that conference evolve.
Until then, i2i is here as to assist you with information, resources, trainings, webinars, consultation and business supports. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you or your organization. And above all, be safe, and stay in touch.
