The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Due to the devastating hurricane that hit Louisiana this past Sunday, we are cancelling the in-person IQL21 Conference, which was scheduled for September 22-24 in New Orleans. AMGA members in this region have confirmed the damage is substantial, and the Marriott New Orleans also has indicated that the damage from Hurricane Ida would compromise our ability to deliver a safe, quality event.
Although we will not be able to meet in person, AMGA will still offer our IQL virtual conference on October 27-29. This event was originally planned as an alternative for those who could not travel to New Orleans, so all events scheduled for the live event have been converted to virtual options. On-demand access for up to two weeks after the event will be available to allow maximum flexibility in viewing.
All in-person IQL attendees are already registered to participate in this virtual offering as a benefit to your participation in the face-to-face conference. We will be reaching out to you in the next week to discuss refunds of the difference between the onsite fee and virtual fee, as well as how to apply your previously paid registration fees toward an organization-wide access pass. The leadership councils that were scheduled to meet in New Orleans will be held September 22-24 in a virtual format and are not included in IQL Virtual. Your council meeting registration fee will be included in your refund. Please look for more information via the listservs to follow from AMGA regarding your specific council’s virtual meeting.
We know that you were looking forward to a live conference experience, and we are sorry we cannot come together as a community for the IQL21 New Orleans conference. We will be back in-person soon – with a slate of regional meetings around the corner, as well as our 2022 Annual Conference! Further details about the leadership council meetings and in-person fall conferences will be coming your way shortly.
