COVID Task Force

Update from the Executive Director: Our Response to COVID-19

WMCCAI is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and we will make decisions about chapter programs as we have appropriate information to do so. As of today, all chapter events and education sessions scheduled through April 30, 2020 have been cancelled. We are working to determine what can be rescheduled at a later date; chapter staff will be in contact with any pre-registered attendees and sponsors as we make those determinations. All other WMCCAI events through August 31, 2020 are being reviewed; registration links will not open for those events until their status is determined. Our chapter website is updated often – please visit for the latest event statuses and resources. If you have any questions, please email WMCCAI’s Executive Director, Jaime Barnhart, CMP, CAE, at or reach out to the chapter staff at

Additionally, below are direct links to the orders pertaining to essential and non-essential businesses in each area:
