UPDATE: IAI Elite Training Days Rescheduled for August in Nashville

The International Association of Interviewers has announced that Elite Training Days have been rescheduled for August 13 – 14, 2020. WZ will also hold a Master Class on August 12. The event will still be held at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Below is the latest announcement from Wayne Hoover and the team at the International Association of Interviewers.

Due to the increased health risks stemming from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the ever-changing recommendations of the CDC, we have decided to reschedule both the Elite Training Days event and WZ’s Master Class.

We are excited to announce that we will still have Elite Training Days and WZ’s Master Class in 2020, rescheduled for August 12 -14. The Elite Training Days will be a full day on August 13 and until 1:00pm on August 14. The WZ Master Class will be held on Wednesday, August 12. The venue will remain the same, as we look forward to hosting you in Nashville, Tennessee. Thanks to the flexibility of our incredible speakers, we can confirm the same agenda as you originally planned on attending.

For logistical ease, all registrations for the Elite Training Days and WZ’s Masterclass will automatically transfer to the new dates with no action needed from you. Attendees will receive an updated invoice with the new dates listed if needed for expense reimbursement purposes, and additional details leading up to the event will be forthcoming. If you have any extenuating circumstances or further questions please contact IAI ekuhn@certifiedinterviewer.com.

We apologize for any inconvenience while also hope you understand this difficult decision. We look forward to seeing you at the event in August and hope each of you stays healthy and safe amid the current climate.

During this time of uncertainty with the flu and coronavirus and the ever-changing recommendations of the CDC, we continued to be diligent in discussing what was best regarding the Elite Training Days event. We have followed the recommendations in place by health organizations and wanted to be proactive in our measures to keep the IAI community as safe and healthy as possible.

Initial Announcement: March 12, 11:00 am

We have decided to inform you that the Elite Training Days you were invited to attend on March 30th – April 2nd has been postponed. Please accept our apologies for any inconveniences this may cause you.

The issues at hand will be dealt with in an expeditious manner as it is our intent to reschedule the Elite Training Days as quickly as possible. Currently we are communicating with the venue hosting the event on another possible date in the fall. As I am sure you can imagine, the venue is having to work through several events, and this may take a few days. We remain optimistic that all will now proceed smoothly, allowing us to be in contact with you very soon with the revised date.

We continue to look forward to having you attend our annual conference and will notify you once we have set a new date. On behalf of the International Association of Interviewers, we thank you for understanding this situation.

I will be in the office today and tomorrow should you want to discuss further. Please make sure to cancel any flights and hotels you may have reserved for this event.
