Below is from IMSA International:

Important IMSA Forum & Expo Update

Safety is our number one priority. As such, the IMSA Board of Directors made the difficult decision this past Friday to cancel the 2020 Forum & Expo in Reno, Nevada.

For those that have registered on reserved an exhibitor booth, please look out for an email later this week. We appreciate your patience as we work out the details of this change.

IMSA is here to serve your during these challenging times. We are in the process of exploring options to offer virtual tech sessions this summer so that you can continue to accrue CECs and keep connected with those in the industry with as little disruption as possible. Stay tuned.

Is IMSA not holding any certification classes in the DFW area this June? I have too many people to go send them to San Antonio or Florida.
