Over the past few days, many of you have reached out to the IAPP regarding the management and status of our upcoming conferences, trainings and gatherings as it relates to COVID-19. Your questions and concerns are warranted, and we are listening.
The IAPP will always prioritize the well-being and safety of our members, sponsors, staff and anyone affiliated with the production of our events and gatherings. The IAPP leadership and staff are focused on this highly dynamic and evolving situation, and we are actively monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19.
We are aware that several organizations have canceled or postponed their conferences, and certain companies are restricting travel. We understand some of you are unable to travel to our conferences due to these bans. These are certainly important considerations, along with information from health and medical experts, local and government officials.
Currently, our events and trainings are proceeding as scheduled. However, this is a fluid and complex situation with new developments daily. We know it is important to keep the lines of communication open, and we will provide updates as soon as they become available. As a first step, we are updating our event landing pages to include the current status of our conferences regarding COVID-19.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns.
