It's probably no surprise to you that due to the virus, Big I in-person events will be cancelled or rescheduled, likely through May. We are closely monitoring this situation and will keep registrants updated about all events that are scheduled in the coming weeks. We have plenty of web-based CE options which may be particularly helpful during these next few weeks.
