A Message from IONL President Regarding the Postponed Conference

Friday, May 15, 2020  

Dear Friends & Colleagues, 

 After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, IONL has come to the difficult decision of postponing the 2020 IONL Annual Conference until the Spring of 2021. Caring for the safety and well-being of our attendees, partners, and overall staff has been and always will be IONL's top priority. We know this is a challenging time for everyone and appreciate your continued understanding and support.

More information on the specific dates of the 2021 conference will be shared with you in the coming weeks. Any updates will be reflected on the conference website as well. While there, I encourage you to visit the IONL COVID-19 Resource Page for immediate resources, the latest government information, and tips for managing the pandemic.

As we navigate through these challenging times, I'm reminded of how fortunate we are to be part of this strong community of nurses that supports each other wholeheartedly. It is the power of this community that will propel us to better times. Please know that you can reach out to IONL at with any questions, concerns, or support you may need.

I look forward to seeing you all at our Annual Conference in 2021. Until then, stay safe and healthy!

All the best,
