For current members:
In appreciation of your current membership and recognition of all that we’ve been through so far this year, the IDA Board of Directors would like to offer our current members a free month of membership on your next renewal date (on or before June 30,
2021). If you’ve been affected by the economic crisis caused by the pandemic and would like to opt-in to this free month of membership, please check your email for the promo code to enter at checkout for your next member dues payment.
We’ll take off the equivalent of one month from your annual dues amount. Members who have opted in to auto-renewal: please contact email@example.com to have your
automatically-generated invoice adjusted by our office.
Alternatively, if you are having difficulty covering any portion of your dues, please contact us, and we'll work with you to continue your IDA membership.
Additionally, because of the economic impact of this unprecedented situation, the IDA is extending the membership expiration grace period from one month to three months at no additional cost to you or your organization.
Your expiration date will not change, but if you are unable to make your dues payment as usual, your access to the IDA community and member benefits will not be suspended after 30 days. You will continue to stay connected to resources and your network
of peers for 90 days after expiration. Thank you for your membership and your dedication to the industry and your profession. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Official IDA Communications
The IDA has hosted several panel discussions to allow a platform for members to ask questions about the current COVID-19 pandemic and how it is impacting businesses across the country. Panelists started by giving a short introduction of themselves
and their perspective on the current COVID-19 impact on the detailing industry. We then opened the floor to questions from the audience. These sessions are intended to allow our members to have their voices heard and questions answered.
Replays of each panel discussion are now available. Click the links below to watch the recording and join the follow-up conversation in our new "IDA Members and COVID-19" members-only forum.
The IDA invites all detailing professionals struggling to deal with the stress, anxiety, and uncertainty of our current circumstances – in the US and around the globe – to join us for ongoing group sessions.
We invite you to meet virtually each week on Fridays (via GoToMeeting) for one-hour sessions. Visit the event calendar to register for the next session.
This is an opportunity for industry professionals to support each other and to make new connections, helping participants build relationships and get the emotional support they need during this time of social isolation and economic upheaval.
Jason Rose, CD-SV, RT, will be moderating the group, with guest speakers on topics such as coping methods, mental health tips, personal survival skills, and more. Jason has a BS in psychology and Human Services and has over 1,000 hours logged facilitating
self-help personal growth groups.
