Important Event Update
With many recent stay-at-home orders now in effect across the country, it is necessary to cancel our 2020 APHSA NAPIPM Education Conference. On Thursday, May 7, 2020, the Honorable Governor Kate Brown of Oregon, extended the public health emergency in the state relating to COVID-19 until July 2020 and extended imposed restrictions on mass gatherings consistent with CDC guidelines and Oregon’s plan for Rebuilding a Safe and Strong Oregon through September 2020. As always, we are committed to our collective mission to advance the well-being of all people and providing shared learning opportunities that allow us to continue to generate solutions TOGETHER while still protecting the health and well-being of those around us.
Please note we continue to monitor COVID-19 updates and guidance closely while planning for the ISM Annual Conference in Florida. Recognizing that we are now amid what will be a marathon, not a sprint, we continue to keep options open and flexible and will remain in close communication regarding all relevant updates.
We encourage you to visit our COVID-19 Updates and Resources page which is updated regularly with information you may find useful. Please be in touch if you have questions, concerns, or requests for additional support. You can also connect with us by signing up for our weekly newsletter, This Week In Washington, or following us on Twitter @APHSA1.
Please know that we are here to support you and your organization during these challenging times. Here is a brief message of encouragement for you from Brett Culp, award-winning filmmaker, and our keynote speaker from last year’s Information Technology Solutions Management for Human Services (ISM) conference.
Thank you for your tireless work and dedication!
