COVID 19 UPDATE-January 14, 2021



The ISMA Executive Board and I hope everyone is staying safe.  I being retired,  am truly proud of all the healthcare workers out there.  You are doing an amazing job.


ISMA had a board meeting on Tuesday , January 12, 2021 via Zoom and it was discussed and decided to cancel the April 2021 conference  in Bloomington, IL.  This was done in the best interest for the safety of our members, the speakers and  AAMA representative.


The 2022 April conference is in the planning stage.  It will be held in Bloomington, IL.  When the plans are finalized the information will be posted on our Facebook page.


We are working on have some zoom Ceu sessions.  Please check our our face book page for updates and ongoing CEU sessions available by other states.   The AAMA website also has free CEUS for members listed under continuing education.  You can do these at your own pace and at any time.  Remember your CPR card can also be used for CEUS.  You must save them to be submitted. 


ISMA website is currently having some technical issues. We are aware and working on getting a new website provider.


 Watch the ISMA Facebook page for updates.  Our yearly mass mailing will go out in a few weeks with all the updates.


Please continue to stay safe.   Wear your mask, wash your hands, cover your mouth, stay home if you are sick.  OMG! It's true you do become your mother!
