IDA South Chapter

IDA will be offering CE Hours from CDI for LPCC, LEP, LCSWs & LMFTs; along with our CE hours for PT, Speech and Language & Nursing.

IDA is taking all developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the situation. There are no plans to postpone or cancel the Vivian Weinstein Event, May 11 at The California Endowment Center. We will continue to monitor the situation and, of course, will be in discussion with health authorities and the Association’s volunteer leaders. IDA will follow recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the policies of the local government and city/county officials. IDA is planning to implement additional onsite tools for attendees such as increased availability of hand sanitizing stations and increased cleaning across all high-volume touchpoints (surfaces, entrances/exits, etc.). IDA will work to ensure the highest possible degree of hygiene and safety at the Event. The health and safety of our attendees is our highest priority. We will continue to provide any necessary updates as soon as they become available.
