Regrettably after consultation with the IPTA Board President, Julie Nemmers, and Department of Education Representative, Max Christensen, we came to the conclusion that for the safety of everyone involved we had to cancel the 2020 Regional Meetings.
IPTA Regional Meetings will be held at nine (9) locations around the State of Iowa, from April 7 through April 23, 2020. We are coming to a community near you. Please sign up today choosing the location that is the most convenient for you and your team.
