Virtual Annual Conference


2020 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE MATERIALS

In consultation with CCAP staff and our Annual Conference venue, the CCAP officers have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference at the Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Somerset County. But, we know you were looking forward to seeing each other, so the Annual Conference will go on as an abbreviated virtual Conference on August 17 and 18!
