Editor's note: Due to COVID-19, iAST will now be held as an interactive, networking-filled virtual conference on July 21-23. Register here!


ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The iA Institute and insideARM announced today that iA Strategy & Tech will be an entirely virtual event this year. The event was to be held in Austin, TX this June. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the in-person conference will be converted into a completely virtual event. 

“We cannot in good conscience hold an in-person event in June,” said Amy Perkins, chair of iA Strategy & Tech. “Everyone’s health is our priority. But, we also recognize the need to maintain some level of normalcy and to continue collaborating, learning and planning for the future. That’s why we’ve chosen to challenge ourselves to find this new, innovative and creative way to deliver our planned content. This means that all the sessions, all the great interaction and all the great insight will be available to you wherever you happen to be - just as long as you have an internet connection. We’re working hard to get details together for you quickly.”

At the virtual iA Strategy & Tech event, attendees will still get to hear from credit and collections strategy experts with the broadest, most data-informed and practical points-of-view. Plus, the event will showcase the most innovative, applicable new technology in the industry. Information on the event itself and how to register will be out soon.

In the meantime, iA and insideARM will be reaching out soon to speakers, people who have already registered and sponsors of this event with new details. 

Look out for more information on the virtual event in the coming days at iast.insidearm.com.

On a related note, insideARM published an article today talking about the steps certain state regulators are taking amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including easing the work-from-home requirements for collectors.
