Conference Update

Dear members,


I hope this message finds everyone well. The Annual Arson School that was scheduled for May of this year has been postponed until October 18-21, 2021.  The reasons are as follows.


A decision on a go/ no go of the school was necessary by March 31, 2021 for the conference center and their scheduling.  Based on the current restrictions on gatherings and COVID numbers not trending in the right way,  board members and myself felt we would not be able to host the event on the May dates.


I greatly appreciate all of the feedback that the organization received either through the survey or direct contact with members.  Thank you.  The majority of the survey responders requested the school be held in person in May if possible.  The next most popular choice was to reschedule to the fall.  


I have discussed with many of you the possibility of a virtual class or presentation put on by the chapter.  The feedback I received was that many were burned out on virtual training and did wish to have it.   The board has in the past and will continue to post links on our website to available virtual training.


Thanks for your time and consideration 


Jeremy Berard 

President MI-IAAI 20/21
