COVID-19 VIRUS Announcement

Participants in IMSA Certification Schools and IMSA BC sponsored events, while generally not in the COVID-19 Virus high risk category, are an integral part of the Public Safety, Public Infrastructure and Emergency Operations resource base.  In consideration of this, the IMSA BC Board of Directors has decided to postpone upcoming Certification Schools until late October or as the situation requires.  Our AGM has been cancelled for this year.  Participants on waiting lists or registered for Certification Schools will be notified by email as events unfold.
