EthosCE User Group Meeting 2021 Planning

Hello everyone!

We are in the beginning stages of planning our annual EthosCE User Group Meeting for 2021. Last year, the event was moved to be virtual, and we are considering a virtual event this spring or an in-person event in July. There is a possibility of a joint event with Cadmium!

We are not certain yet of our plans, but we are interested in hearing:

  1. Is your organization planning a conference or annual meeting to be virtual or in-person in 2021?

  2. Do you currently have travel restrictions in place? If so, until when?

Thank you and please stay well!!

  1. Is your organization planning a conference or annual meeting to be virtual or in-person in 2021?
  • Our annual meeting is in October. We are hoping to have a live meeting but there is too much uncertainty this early, so we haven’t confirmed yet. Either way, we are no offering all the session from the annual meeting in an on demand format for those first line workers who have limitations in their travel.
  1. Do you currently have travel restrictions in place? If so, until when?
  • We have very limited travel restrictions. Only staff who have direct relationships with their assigned hospitals are allowed to travel to that hospital. All other travel is still prohibited. This includes no travel to conferences. We are located in Dallas TX, and our offices are still shut down through April 2021. And that could change depending on how bad the cases get here in Texas this winter.
  1. Is your organization planning a conference or annual meeting to be virtual or in-person in 2021?
    We have several conferences. All are virtual in the first half of the year. It is likely the second half will be virtual as well with some small in-person.
  2. Do you currently have travel restrictions in place? If so, until when? Travel restrictions are in place until June 30, 2021. Even if travel restrictions are lifted, budgets may limit the ability to travel.

We have an annual conference for nurses annually and planning to do virtually in 2021. We usually have btwn 700-900 attendees.

Yes our travel is restricted until further notice.

Hi!
We are virtual through mid summer. We have our AM in October and moving forward with COVID safe in person plans. But yes, its a world of uncertainty.

Thank you for your response!! An on demand format is a great idea as in-person attendance is probably still going to be tricky in 2021!

Thanks Anne! 2021 is going to be interesting to see when the tides change…

Thank you, Paula! Stay safe out there and thank you for all that you do!

Absolutely- uncertain all around. Thanks for your response!

Hello,

We are not planning any live events for Spring 2021 and Brown Universtiy has extended its travel restrictions for faculty, staff, students indefinitely. I do but expect that nonessential travel will be allowed through Spring.

A virtual event would be ideal.

Most of the events we are planning for 2021 are virtual, although we are working with some depts that are tentatively planning live for next fall. For every conference that is planning live, we are requiring they have a “Plan B” in case they cannot have an in-person event.

UW-Madison has non essential travel restrictions in place “until further notice”

Hello!

“Is your organization planning a conference or annual meeting to be virtual or in-person in 2021?”

Yes, our Annual is scheduled for Sept 2021 in Las Vegas with hybrid planning underway. We also currently have April and June in-person conferences scheduled. These are prep courses for Board exams so we’re actively monitoring the status of the exams.

Yes. We are hosting our Annual Assembly virtually Feb. 17-19. It’s a heavy lift for staff and volunteers. Lots of decisions to make about virtual platforms and content delivery.

IDSA is planning virtual events through spring at this point. The second half of the year we have our large annual meeting, which may be a hybrid event but details have not yet been determined.

Travel restrictions are in place for now, until further notice.

We have travel restrictions in place until June 30 and probably restricted thereafter. A virtual event would be great for us. Thank you!
