BOMA Webinar Need:
Hi APIC Greater Atlanta members,
We’ve had a request from the Building Owners and Managers Association of Georgia to have one of our members speak at a webinar about coronavirus and ways building operators can protect their occupants and visitors from respiratory disease. They are expecting 10-30 of their members attend the webinar. They would like a 1-hour presentation with 30 minutes allotted for Q&A. Their proposed dates are
Wednesday, March 4 1-3PM
Monday, March 9 1-3PM
Keep in mind, delivering a webinar with a primary focus on infection prevention and control is worth 2 IPUs per hour of presentation time when recertifying for your CIC.
If anyone is interested, please let me know. If you’d like to include another presenter such as a fellow IP, an ID physician, or epidemiologist that’s fine as well. The exact content would be up to you, but they would like information on the coronavirus outbreak since that’s been the main headline lately. Of course, it would be a great time to discuss topics like respiratory hygiene and flu vaccination which are more relevant here in Georgia at this time.
Since they are looking to hold this webinar soon, if anyone is interested, please let me know ASAP so that I can connect you with their organization to discuss more details.
Kaleb Price
President, APIC Greater Atlanta
