The coronavirus is disrupting life as we know it. Unfortunately, IEC and our plans for upcoming meetings and conferences have not been immune from the effects of the coronavirus. The health and well-being of our staff, members, students, and chapters are IEC’s top priority, and this concern has forced us to make some tough decisions about our event calendar for 2020.

We’ve decided to postpone the upcoming IEC Safety Summit until August 25-26, 2020. All of the other details, with the exception of the dates, remain the same – the event will still take place at the Eaton Experience Center in Houston.

If you’ve already registered for the IEC Safety Summit, here’s what you need to know:

  • As an IEC Safety Summit registrant, we hope you can join us on August 25-26! Your registration will be honored on the new dates, and you do not need to take any action at this time.
