2020 isoswo spring conference postponed

Over the past week, many public events have been canceled or postponed due to concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus. There have now been confirmed cases within areas of Iowa where some of our members are living and working. Many of the ISOSWO members’ facilities would not be able to continue their services effectively if their staff was affected by illness or quarantine.  

The ISOSWO Board and Officers communicated via conference call today regarding the 2020 Spring Conference scheduled for April 2nd and 3rd in Storm Lake. It was determined and agreed upon that the conference in Storm Lake be postponed until a future date yet to be determined. The conference chairs discussed the postponement with the facility and if rescheduled, ISOSWO and its members should not incur additional costs.

If you had already made hotel reservations in the ISOSWO block of rooms, those reservations have been canceled. If you booked outside of the ISOSWO block of rooms, you will need to contact the hotel directly.

Refunds will be issued in the form of a check to everyone who registered for the conference. Please be patient as conference staff and volunteers work through this process. 

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Stay healthy and safe.
