Coronavirus/COVID-19 Statement

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Statement (Updated March 13, 2020)

At 11:30 this morning we made the difficult but socially-responsible and prudent decision to cancel the rest of our exams and events for the balance of the season. This affects 102 events and 989 registered attendees in all disciplines including exams, tryouts and specialist events.

This decision reflects, respects and joins the incredible sacrifices being made by major sports leagues and events to cancel in order to minimize risk of exposure and spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19. While we recognize the dedication and efforts of you as a member to prepare for exams and participate in events we also recognize that you will have another opportunity to do so in the coming seasons. As disappointing as that is for you and for us as the organization that serves you, we cannot justify any activity the contributes to health risks for the membership or the general population.

Important: All members that signed up for events and exams will receive a full refund for the event fee in the coming weeks. Please be patient as this process will take considerable time to reconcile and process.

In addition, all members that signed up for events and need continuing education credits will be exempted from paying any delinquency fee for having not earned your education credit this season. You will have all next season as well to obtain and update your continuing education credits. That said, we encourage you to consider taking one of our online educational courses as a safe (no travel or exposure) option that can earn your 6 credits per course. This is not a requirement — just a suggestion should you want to complete your educational update this season. You can find out more at the following link on our Eastern Division website: www.psia-e.org/ed/online-courses

As you can imagine, we are in the highest state of activity and action at this point to handle this rapidly changing situation. However, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at psia-e@psia-e.org or call our office at 518-452-6095.

We are very sorry to share this news with you and hope you can understand our rationale for doing so. Stay safe, healthy and please consider joining or following one of the following Eastern Division social media pages and groups to stay in touch with us (and each other) in the coming weeks and months.
