On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, IDSA's Executive Director presented the annual membership meeting and year in review. During this session, Chris Livaudais, IDSA provided a look back on our 2021 performance as well as updates on how the association has been navigating its exit from the COVID-19 pandemic.
