***ANNOUNCEMENT - 03/19/2020***

please read below for a statement from the icna board:

Greetings to our brothers and sisters.  During a heart-wrenching meeting of the ICNA Board today, we were given no choice but to cancel the 2020 ICNA Conference.  The board deliberated over options to move forward, but with new restrictions being implemented daily by State and Federal authorities due to the COVID-19 virus, the only professional and fiscally responsible choice left on the table was to cancel.

While this development saddens us, there is at least somewhat of a bright horizon looming ahead.  With the help of long-developed relationships, the board has already secured the details for the 2021 Conference.  It will be the week of April 19th, 2021 in the same venue, in Moline Illinois.  The hotels and TaxSlayer Center have pledged their complete assistance and we are already booked, and our registration page will also be active for 2021 very soon!  We intend to have the same speaker lineup and are finalizing those details as this comes to you.  It is only because of the hard work and dedication of your board and the support of all of you that this could even remotely be possible, and our heartfelt thanks go out to all involved.

On the official technical side, the board has worked diligently to create the best options for moving forward concerning this year’s conference cancellation.  We would like to offer the following options:

1.) If you have already paid your registration for the 2020 conference you can choose to apply that payment to the 2021 conference.  You will be locked in at this year’s rate, and next year’s increase will not apply.  After speaking to some training directors, we learned this will also help departments to manage their training budget since the funds were already earmarked, keeping them from being reallocated or reduced in the next fiscal year.  We have put processes in place so this can be done. *If you wish to apply your 2020 payment to the 2021 conference, please email the board at [email protected] and provide attendee’s names and agency names, and contact information for those who will be attending the 2021 conference, and a return receipt will be sent to you once 2021 registration is open*

2.) Departments requiring a refund may request such by emailing the board at [email protected] with the specifics. We will need names, agency name, email address, and payment method of the original payer and will process them back to you as quickly as possible.  Please be patient and remember our board members are volunteers who are going to have to individually do these, there is no automation!

Please check our website and Facebook page for 2021 registration announcements, approximately mid-April.

     Thank you for all that you do and please be safe.
