In light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and on behalf of the IFSER Board of Directors, we want to share our current plan for postponing this year’s upcoming Educator’s Summit (ES) on July 24 – 25, 2020, in Costa Mesa, CA, until 2021.
We have been monitoring the local, state, and national recommendations for travel and face-to-face meetings. As the ES is only 2 months away, the Board of Directors’ decision to cancel the conference this summer and reschedule it to next year did not come lightly. Safety of our attendees, speakers, and vendors are the first and foremost important aspect of hosting a conference. With the uncertainty of the summer months across the country, postponing this year’s ES to 2021 is the prudent choice.
July 23 – 24, 2021 is the new date for the Educator’s Summit. The venue will remain the same – Costa Mesa, CA at the Westin Hotel, with the same host school, Orange Coast College, just as had been originally planned for this summer. We have also secured the same room blocks at the Westin for the same price. Attendees/Vendors: If you have already paid for the 2020 ES, we can refund you now or retain your payment and apply it to the 2021 ES. You’ll each be receiving an email from me to discuss your options.
On behalf of the IFSER Board of Directors, we want to thank everyone for working tirelessly and selflessly during this pandemic. Sonographers and educators – we are proud of all you are doing and hope to see you all next summer. As always, do not hesitate to contact any Board member for any questions or comments. If you’d like some fun sunglasses to share with your students, send me an email and I’ll mail you some! We’d love to post your “IFSER shades” pictures on Facebook and LinkedIn.
In the meantime, for 2020, we will offer a FREE 2 hour, 2 credit CME webinar to everyone on Saturday, July 25, 2020(time and topics are pending), more information coming soon. Continue to stay safe and healthy. Looking forward to being together at the 2021 ES in SoCal!
