Hello IIDA Indiana Community,
Like all of you, we have been monitoring the rapid uptick in COVID cases in Indiana, and we are concerned about what this means for the health and safety of our families, our communities and our industry. We are also paying attention to what this means for our planned events this fall and winter.
As interior designers, we have a responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public. Our board of directors recently voted to require masks at all IIDA Indiana Chapter in-person events for groups of 20 or more or where physical distancing is not possible. We also voted to prioritize holding our events outdoors.
After much consideration we have also decided it best to postpone the 2021 Indiana Design Expo until 2022. We want to ensure we are able to deliver an event that is not only valuable to our industry but also safe for those in attendance.
We will continue to monitor COVID rates and listen to guidance offered by the Indiana Department of Health and The Centers for Disease Control. We will, of course, also adhere to any city, county or state ordinances that may be implemented to stop the spread of COVID.
Thank you for being a valued part of the IIDA Indiana community!
Adrienne Searcy, IIDA Indiana President 2021-2022
IIDA Indiana Board of Directors
