Over the last few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure we are taking every precaution to look after our community.
After careful consideration, we’ve decided to postpone the upcoming Minneapolis Forum on April 14th–15th.
IANS Forums are a great opportunity to learn from our Faculty members and network with your peers. Stay tuned for updates on other Forums in your area in the future.
