Resiliency & Recovery

Resources for Resiliency & Recovery

Our events community continues to be affected by California wildfires this year.  We also have been greatly affected by COVID-19. Whether or not you are an ILEA Member doesn't matter. If you need help, please reach out to us via email and we'll do our best.  Stay positive, stay healthy and stay safe. This will pass.

The Search Foundation also provides assistance to event professionals during crisis. Visit for more information and assistance.

We are trying to summarize the latest and most relevant information for ease-of-use.  Please refer to official guidelines and government information sites, like Blueprint for Safer Economy or CDPH for the latest restrictions and guidelines. This is not legal advice and is only used in an informational manner.
