Dear IAAI-OK Members,
After much careful thought, consideration, and discussion, your OK-IAAI executive board has voted to cancel this year’s annual conference. We had all hoped that the COVID-19 pandemic would have abated by now but that is just not the case. As I write this letter to you, news reports continue to come in about new cases and deaths. Your OK-IAAI executive board does NOT want to put any of you, our valuable members, speakers, hosts, or your families at risk and we felt this was the most responsible and prudent action to take at this time.
For those of you that depend on this conference for the majority of your CLEET hours, I do have some good news! Board member Ashley Stephens has been in contact with CLEET and informs us that they will count CFITrainer.net training hours as creditable CLEET hours, at least for this year. Following is the email from Ashley:
I spoke with Tami from CLEET. Our members can receive CLEET hours for completing the CFI Trainers online. Once completed, they need to fill out the Report Of Training Form. They will then scan and email that form, along with any certifications of training, (provided by CFI Trainer), to the following email address: Online_Training_Report@cleet.state.ok.us. To access the CFI Trainers go to www.cfitrainer.net and register for an account, which is free. There are 71 available training programs from which to choose.
It will be a great conference next year as we will be focusing on electric vehicle fires, changes to NFPA 921 and 1033, and much more. Check out the new conference dates on our website! Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you next year!
Wm. S., “Bill”, Hollander, President OK-IAAI
