An update on the COVID-19 situation as it impacts future events.
In line with current government advice and to safeguard the health of colleagues and their families, Icon Scotland group has regretfully had to cancel its currently planned events until further notice. Refunds will be made available through the Eventbrite platform. We are committed to running these events at a later stage - where feasible - and are already investigating greater use of technology to connect with members and provide training online. We welcome any input and suggestions in these unprecedented times to help us support our members. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with these. You can also stay in touch with us via twitter, facebook and the Icon website.
