A Message from
Jim McGarry, EDmarket President & CEO

March 17, 2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is unprecedented, and requires many of us to modify our normal practices to meet this challenge. We understand there are significant impacts across all sectors of society and businesses (particularly with supply chain management and delivery for our members and exhibitors). We want to reassure you that our team is here to support moving through this challenging time as we all make adjustments.

Preventative measures are being taken to protect our individual and collective health. In an effort to protect the health and well-being of our team working in our DC area office, EDmarket will operate on a virtual basis beginning Wednesday, March 18. Be assured, we are not suspending or closing operations. We will continue to serve you and conduct our business on a remote basis through March 31.

I will provide specific updates about EDmarket activities as needed and as events occur. This includes the EDspaces Conference, which WILL take place as planned, November 10-13, in Charlotte, NC. The EDmarket team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and is following the guidance from worldwide health organizations and experts. We are fully committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide a safe and healthy environment for attendees and exhibitors. We will post updates, if necessary, as we receive more information.

Moving forward, all scheduled online EDmarket events such as webinars and virtual board meetings, will remain scheduled as planned.

For reliable information and updates about the virus and on how the wider education community is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can book mark our Coronavirus Resources & Updates page.

Thank you for your continued understanding and support as we all work together to navigate this rapidly changing situation.

Most of all, stay safe, healthy, and follow the recommended CDC guidance.

Jim McGarry
EDmarket President & CEO
