ILPA Statement on Coronavirus with Regard to Planned Events

Update – March 11, 2020

With the rapidly developing situation around the global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and with the well-being of our community as a priority, ILPA has made the decision to postpone the ILPA Institute Level I in Chicago, March 24-25, the ILPA Legal Conference, April 14-15 in Washington, DC, and the ILPA LP-GP Industry Roundtable, April 29 - 30 in New York.

Over the past several weeks, we heard from several attendees about travel restrictions put in place by your organizations, and we are highly sensitive to the growing health and safety concerns related to large gatherings. We believe postponing the events will better allow us to ensure the best experience for all.

Attendees of these events will be contacted directly today. New dates for the ILPA Legal Conference and LP-GP Industry Roundtable will follow shortly, with the ILPA Institute Level I course being rescheduled to August 18-20, 2020.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that postponing these events may cause and appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate an uncertain current environment.

ILPA will continue to actively monitor developments in the coming weeks, and will provide updates on other related ILPA events in due course.

ILPA is actively monitoring developments related to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its potential impact on travel to upcoming ILPA events and education sessions, specifically the ILPA Institute Level I in Chicago, March 24-25 and the ILPA Legal Conference, April 14-15 in Washington, DC.  At present, those events are proceeding as planned.

The health, safety and well-being of our members and our wider community is our highest priority. We are monitoring real-time guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with local health departments in each event city. ILPA is also working with hotels and event venues to proactively implement appropriate precautionary hygienic measures.

In addition, we encourage members to follow regular CDC guidance for everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses of any kind.

Any changes to the operating status of an upcoming ILPA event or educational program will be communicated immediately to all registered attendees. For assistance, please contact events@ilpa.org for more information.
