July marks the fifth month without any in-person CIRAS gatherings on the CIRAS schedule. We cancelled our entire schedule of educational trainings in March as part of a nationwide effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. As of now, that cancellation runs through the end of July.
But we just wanted to remind you that we’re still here – and ask for your help.
CIRAS staff have been working hard over the past month to shift our events to webinars and to create other online content so Iowa companies can continue to learn what they need to grow. Many of those events, especially those related to COVID-19, have been recorded and are still available in various locations across our COVID-19 website.
(Iowa Lean Consortium members should look the ILC site for a list of educational webinars available to ILC members.)
Like you, much of our post-pandemic schedule remains in flux. But CIRAS recently formed a wide-ranging committee to study what our events should look like going forward and when we might be able to meet you in person again. If you have any ideas for us to consider, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch this space for more information as we have it and/or check our events schedule for a full list of everything we have planned online.
