Message from ICT Executive Director
Following recent developments surrounding COVID-19, including widespread cancellations of events and restrictions on non-essential travel by many organizations, ICT has made the decision to postpone the April 2, Workers’ Compensation Seminar and combine it with the Workers’ Compensation Conference on September 17, 2020.
This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with regard for our attendees’ health and well-being. Those who have already registered for the Seminar may apply their registration fee towards the Workers’ Compensation Conference, or receive a full refund. Please contact Cynthia Haywood by April 13th with your registration request at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512.637.5442.
As always, the insurance industry stands ready to respond to catastrophic situations. Today, the coronavirus outbreak and its subsequent impact on individuals, businesses, and our greater global community presents the latest challenge to various sectors of the industry and our nation’s health system. ICT reports on new developments weekly in our “News to Know” email, and have compiled information from various resources to help members navigate the latest updates on coronavirus in a COVID-19 resource page.
It is imperative we keep the health and safety of our employees, members, and those who support this industry at the core of our decisions. We want to assure you we will always take into consideration how best to serve those who place their trust in us. At this time our other events are proceeding as planned. However, given the evolving nature of this issue, we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and will update you if there is any change in plans for future ICT events.
We urge our community to take preventative steps recommended by health care officials to protect yourselves and others. We are grateful for the support we receive from our members and your well-being is important to us.
Please let me know how ICT may be of service to you.
Executive Director, Insurance Council of Texas
