Message from President

Dear Members,

We regret to inform you that due to the ongoing COVID crisis, we need to take some temporary measures in order to reduce the financial impact on our Institute. 2020 has been a challenge, and unfortunately we do not see any perspective in the short term to return to a more normalized situation. We do our best to continue to serve you as a member, but our revenues drastically decreased whilst most of our costs remained stable. After carefully considering the different options, we have decided to reduce our staff capacity with about 50%, including the one of our CEO. These arrangements will start as from now and will hopefully not take longer than a few months.

We will remain available and continue to offer online trainings and webinars. However, our communities will be temporary stopped and some training including the Master Class will be postponed until we are able to organize on-site trainings again. We will do our best to remain at your disposal but we count on your understanding and ask you to contact us for urgent matters only.

This was not an easy decision but we have to look forward. This temporary solution contributes to the necessary savings to remain financially sustainable, whilst most important activities can still continue. We hope to be able to restart our normal functioning as soon as possible, so that we can once again make full progress together.

Meanwhile, stay safe and healthy.

Katleen Seeuws

President IIA Belgium
