IndySHRM Update regarding coronavirus/COVID-19

Hello, IndySHRM.

We want to share a new update about what IndySHRM is doing with respect to managing and planning a safe experience ahead of our upcoming chapter programs.

IndySHRM is actively taking precautions to protect the health and safety of our members and program attendees. We have been monitoring and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation from verified sources including the Indiana State Department of Health, WHO, and CDC in regard to reducing the spread of coronavirus.

In-Person Attendee Cap
We are now capping the number of in-person attendees at our programs to a maximum of thirty (30) people to provide as safe of a program as possible to our members.

NEW - Live Streaming Option
We have just introduced live streaming as a new way to consume programs virtually. There is no cap to the number of virtual attendees allowed to register for programs. When you register for upcoming programs, you'll see this new option available.

IndySHRM Program Status Page
We have created a dedicated website page so that you may monitor the status of our upcoming Spring programs as they relate to potential changes due to Coronavirus development. At this time, we still plan to hold upcoming spring programs both in-person AND virtually. Visit this status page here:
https://indyshrm.org/page/Spring2020ProgrammingUpdates

We will take the fullest precautions to prevent the potential spread of the virus. To that end, we are asking all registered in-person program attendees that have visited an affected area and/or have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case within 14 days of an upcoming program's start date not to attend the program in person.

We recommend members who opt for in-person attendance follow the outlined good hygiene hand washing protocols. We are sensitive and respect each member’s own assessment of personal welfare and want to offer any accommodation request by email at indyshrm_admin@indyshrm.org or by filling out a Contact Us form.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will follow-up with you directly as necessary. We truly appreciate your cooperation in creating a healthy and safe educational experience. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Regards,

Jessica Stephenson, SHRM-CP, PHR
