COVID-19: During the pandemic, ICS will not ask members to travel internationally due to the risks involved in doing so. Where an event requires an international expert, ICS will request remote or pre-recorded presentations for that speaker. Should local speakers be requested for an event, then we would ask ICS members to take all reasonable precautions as confirmed by your local health department/government. The safety of ICS members is paramount, and we would ask members to let the office know if they have any concerns before an event.
