To the SCIP Community:
As the spread of COVID-19 accelerates throughout much of the world, quarantines and shutdowns are being implemented, stock markets are reeling, and anxiety is high. I wanted to share two important updates from SCIP that are relevant to our community:
How we’re supporting our members– With the recent launch of our new website, SCIP’s archive of research, best practices, and tools is more accessible than ever before. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are making three immediate changes to serve our community:
- Increasing the frequency of webinars
- Beginning to beta-test virtual roundtable discussions
- Doubling the member discount on our online training program, SCIP Digital Learning to make distance learning more accessible
In addition, we are exploring additional virtual/digital services, and will share more when these are “ready for prime time”. Click here for more details.
IntelliCon in Chicago (May 11-13)– Our top priorities are the health and safety of our community, and delivering on our mission of providing unique best practice sharing and learning opportunities. We’re working closely with our Board, the hotel, and local health officials to explore all options for IntelliCon, including rescheduling, and convening one or more virtual events. We expect to reach a decision shortly, and will share that as soon as possible.
With tensions running high, it’s never been more important to make decisions based on facts and insights. We will get through this difficult time by working together. The SCIP Board and I are deeply grateful for your continued support.
