FGIA Plans to Hold Summer Conference
March 18, 2020
Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director, shared in an email to its members on March 16, that the FGIA headquarters office in Schaumburg, Illinois, is closed. All employees from that location are working from home fulltime. The FGIA Canadian office in Ottawa remains open, but that status may change at the discretion of the employees operating out of that facility. Although each Schaumburg employee's office phone is currently being forwarded, email will be the most effective method of communication for many of the staff, she says.
"Given that our next event is set to take place several months from now, FGIA is currently still planning to hold our Summer Conference from June 22-25 in Chicago," Yglesias says. "We will be monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation closely in the coming weeks to properly evaluate proceeding with the event. Should any changes to our plans for the FGIA Summer Conference arise, we will communicate them promptly."
