Frequently Asked Questions

Why was CCWC 18th Annual Conference: Legislative and Educational Forum cancelled?

The conference was cancelled due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since there remains continued uncertainty surrounding the spread and impacts of COVID-19, our primary objective is to protect the health, safety and well-being of our members, staff, exhibitors and other stakeholders.

Will the conference be postponed until a later date or is it permanently cancelled?

Extensive advance planning is required for meetings the size of our conference, with dozens of staff and members involved in planning sessions, and careful coordination with venues large enough to accommodate hundreds of people at once. As such, rescheduling an on-site conference during 2020 is not an option.

However, we are committed to bringing the wealth of information and education opportunities that this conference provides to our members in other innovative ways. Details will be available soon. In the meantime, plan to attend next year’s conference taking place at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa on June 9-11, 2021.

Will participants receive a refund for their conference registration?
