ANNUAL CONVENTION UPDATE:
Annual Convention scheduled for June 22-24, 2020, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are currently facing.
We at ICRA encourage you to take advantage of this time before the rush of returning to work as usual to complete any CEU's you may need. NCRA has extended the deadline by three months for those whose points need to be in by September of this year only.
Here are a couple of links for NCRA sponsored events:

NCRA various webinars
An additional possible resource is other state associations. As we hear of any webinars from other states we will update our website with any information we receive. If anyone hears of any online opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to be able to work together to share information as we can.
Margie Wakeman Wells also offers various online seminars on grammar and punctuation. Her website is https://www.margieholdscourt.com/
Aside from the CEU opportunities, the social networking and coming together at convention is of highest importance to many attendees. In this strange time that is the most disappointing aspect of this difficult decision. We look forward to seeing membership gathered. The board had organized a very interesting seminar, and we hope that those speakers will be available to present in the future. Aside from the logistics, the health and safety of our membership had to be paramount, in addition to the decision being made by ISBA to cancel. We are hopeful that we will be able to present a midyear seminar in late fall/early winter.
Our thoughts are with everyone during this time of uncertainty. We wish you safety and health, and look forward to the opportunity of all being together in the future! Please reach out to any board member if you need assistance with anything.
