Covid-19 Related Event and Training Status Update Hub

As COVID-19 diagnoses continue to increase worldwide, ISA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our members, customers, and staff.  

The World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other global health organizations have universally recommended the cancellation or postponement of gatherings to slow the spread of the virus. 

We are complying with those recommendations. As a result, several events and training classes have been impacted. For the conveniences of our members, students, and customers, we have consolidated lists of those events in one location.  

While we are all working together to come out of this unprecedented situation stronger, we encourage you to take advantage of this additional time for training and education. ISA has an array of online solutions that are designed to help your teams close knowledge gaps, stay up-to-date on industry standards, and adapt to the changing workforce with flexibility.

ISA Events

ISA introduces the Virtual Events Program, a series of virtual opportunities based on the pre-developed content for each event. These webinars and virtual events allow our registrants, members, and customers to engage with expert speakers, ask questions and participate in live, on-line discussions.

Virtual Events Program

Canceled:

ISA 2020 Analysis Division Symposium
26-30 April Long Beach, California

The 2021 ISA Analysis Division Symposium is scheduled for 18-22 April 2021 in Galveston, Texas. ISA will rollover all current registrations and exhibit payments to the 2021 event, OR attendees and sponsors may request a refund.

The decision to cancel this event, rather than postpone it for later in the year was made based on the cost and availability of the venue, as well as the size and scope of this recurring event. The current technical program and committee will simply shift focus to developing an updated version of the same event around next year’s dates.
