COVID-19 and Conference Updates

Communities Joined in Action National Conference Rescheduled to September 20-22, 2021 due to COVID-19 Concerns

After continued monitoring of evolving COVID-19 trends around the nation, it is with great sadness that we announce the CJA 2020 National Conference is cancelled. This was a difficult decision, as we had great hopes of gathering together this October. However, with nationwide reports of undue stress on businesses and communities, as well as the uncertainty of the virus’s continued impact over the coming months, we feel strongly that cancelling is necessary to both protect the public’s health and empower us all to remain committed to the CJA mission.

It is our hope that this decision will allow you — our CJA members and conference attendees — to dedicate your time and resources to remaining focused on responding to your community’s needs during this time. We look forward to gathering again in 2021 with an integrated focus on the COVID-19 response in our communities.
