As the Infectious Diseases Society of America makes strategic changes within its governance structure to help ensure a sustainable future for the Society and improve member engagement, it is also making a location change to ensure its infrastructure and technology facilitate this bold transformation. In early 2020, IDSA headquarters will move to a new location currently under construction at 4040 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Va., a hub of advanced research learning, technology and science in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The Society has been at its current location at 1300 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington since 2006.
“As the premier organization representing the infectious diseases profession, a field on the leading edge of some of the hottest topics in medicine today, IDSA staff continues to expand to meet the needs of our growing membership,” said IDSA CEO Chris Busky, CAE. “The new office space represents an investment in the future of our Society and the more than 11,000 members we serve. In fact, we were able to bring down our costs while achieving a significant upgrade in office space and amenities.”
Designed for LEED Gold and Energy Star Certification, an important concern of IDSA’s environmentally conscious members and staff, the vertical mixed-use development is just miles away from top destinations including: The Pentagon (4 miles); Washington D.C. (5 miles); Tysons Corner (7.5 miles); and Ronald Regan Washington National Airport (7 miles). The development is also a quick walk from Ballston- MU Metro station, making for easy commute and travel.
Stay tuned to IDSA News and other Society communications for more information about the upcoming move, expected to begin as early as February 2020 and to be completed by May 2020.
