AILA National is carefully monitoring the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on upcoming AILA National Events. The health and well-being of the AILA community and our staff continue to be our top priority. At this time, the 2020 AILA Annual Conference and AILA/GMS Annual Global Immigration Forum are outside the time frame of any travel restrictions or emergency declarations and have not been cancelled. We will continue to evaluate the situation as the effective dates of any national or state restrictions change. To provide attendees with options and flexibility virtual/webcast options will be added and registered attendees can cancel at any time up to the May 4th cancellation deadline for a full refund. Up to and following that period, registrants may also switch to the webcast option. AILA will strive to be as flexible as possible with members when considering exceptions. We will continue to explore all options to protect the health and safety of the AILA community and to provide access to the critical resources and information that these conferences provide to our community.
AILA actively encourages all conference participants to take sensible precautions and practice good health habits by following CDC guidelines.
