Cancelled 2020 ISCA Conference/Postponed Until 2021

Dear ISCA Members,

Due to the 5 phase reentry mandated by the Governor of Illinois, we are forced to cancel our 2020 ISCA/EMR Conference. We plan to hold the exact same conference sometime in 2021. We hope by then all of the group meeting restrictions will be lifted and we will be allowed to gather again. 

For those of you who are not aware, IL and Chicago have some of the most restrictive regulations to reopen in the country. These regulations directly affect churches, large groups, and restaurants. Therefore, given the ever changing regulations both ISCA and EMNR believe postponing until 2021 is the best option. 

Here are a few basic details: 

First, there is no need to change anything with your registration. We can use your exact same registration and payment for the 2021 conference. This option is the easiest for everyone and it helps to keep our administration tasks to a minimum. 

Second, if you had a paper accepted for the conference you do not have to change anything. We will automatically accept your paper for the 2021 conference. 

Third, we plan to have the exact same plenary speakers. 

Fourth, if for some reason you do need a refund for the conference, then you can request it through the registration site and it will be issued to you. We understand if funds might be tight for different people. However, you do not have to refund. Your registration will automatically shift to the new conference date. 

Fifth, keep an eye out for the new dates. We are looking at a few dates in April. We plan to release that information soon.
