2021 Conference

DESTINATION: ZERO WASTE, THE SECOND LEG

CRRA 45TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW

August 15-18, 2021

DETAILS FORTHCOMING

We know that 2020 was a challenging year and there are still many questions that stand in front of each and every one of us for 2021.  But one answer that is certain is that CRRA will host its 45th Annual Conference and Trade Show, August 15-18, 2021.  
 
Now, we are cautiously and carefully watching news reports, CDC recommendations and hopeful that we will all be in a better, safer and healthier stance in the new year.  As such, we will not yet announce whether the event will be live (with streaming) or all virtual in 2021.  We anticipate making this announcement in the early part of 2021. 

We want to assure you that whether you are considering being a speaker or attendee, no matter what we do, there will be a way you can attend.  A live event will also include a streaming option for attendees watching from the office, or speakers needing to be "broadcasted in".  And, of course, for a virtual event, you'll still be able to attend all the great features of a conference no matter where you are, or how you participate (attendee, speaker, exhibitor).

 

Additionally, we have extended the deadline for the Call for Papers to January 25, 2021, 6PM PST.  We know that everyone is concerned with how and if they can attend.  We assure you, live or virtual - there is always a place for CRRA's amazing presenters.

While we are carefully waiting and watching, we also want to hear from YOU.  What are your thoughts? Concerns? Limitations? Hopes?  Please take a few minutes to complete this survey and share your input with us on or before January 21, 2021.
