2020 has been quite the show so far and continues to throw us curve balls.  First the pandemic, then the riots and now back to the pandemic.  I, like many, have come to roll my eyes when someone mentions "new normal" but it remains an unfortunate fact. 

What would normally be a great learning experience, a good "networking" time catching up with friends from across the state, and golf tournament at one of the nicest courses in the metro, has hit some obstacles.  At this point, subject to any new restrictions from the governor, Des Moines Burial Assn plans to host a business meeting only conference.  All of the local associations will be invited to send one delegate to the meeting.  That delegate will have the proxy vote for the total eligible delegates allotted for that local.  Those locals who choose not to send a delegate or are not able to send a delegate are invited to "Zoom" into the meeting and will count as attendance to the business meeting.  Members of the ISPA board and Past Presidents do not count as delegates for the local so keep that in mind when deciding who to send. 

The venue will remain the same, the Holiday Inn Des Moines Airport Conference Center, 6111 Fleur Dr. Des Moines, 50321 515-287-2400. 

We invite those attending to come in on Sunday, October 11, 2020 and enjoy a social distanced hospitality room.  Monday the 12th will start with breakfast and registration with the meeting set to start at 0900, a plated lunch will be served and plan on the meeting concluding sometime in the afternoon. 

An agenda will be emailed out in September.
