ANSI Announces Virtual-Only Meetings through December 31, 2020


The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced that all meetings and conferences hosted by ANSI, the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB), and Workcred will be held virtually through December 31, 2020. This includes all World Standards Week 2020 events scheduled for October 19-23, as announced previously.

This precautionary measure has been taken in consultation with ANSI’s governance leadership to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the ANSI community, and is consistent with federal, state, and local guidelines, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) recommendations regarding business gatherings.

ANSI, Workcred, and ANAB leadership continue to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 closely. A decision about ANSI, ANAB, and Workcred meetings during the first quarter of 2021 is expected to be made in November 2020, in consultation with ANSI’s governance leaders.

The health and safety of our employees, members, and guests are our top priority. We appreciate your understanding and support.

ANSI will issue additional announcements as circumstances evolve; please visit for the latest information.
