Breaking News: CAS Announces In-Person 2021 Annual Meeting
The CAS is thrilled to announce that the 2021 CAS Annual Meeting, scheduled for November 7-10, will be a hybrid event, with options for in-person or virtual attendance. The in-person component will be held at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, California, and the virtual option will include opportunities to participate in more sessions via livestream than have ever been available before.
CAS President Jessica Leong said, “After more than a year of virtual events, I’m ecstatic to have the chance to end my presidential term at an in-person Annual Meeting and am especially looking forward to welcoming and congratulating our new Fellows and Associates in person.”
This year’s Annual Meeting will feature extra ways for attendees to engage with each other during sessions and networking events to enhance learning opportunities and the onsite experience. These will include opportunities to connect with members of regional affiliates, first-time attendees, industry peers, and members of DE&I affiliates. In-person sessions will have significantly enhanced group interaction as part of the program and expanded CE opportunities not available to the virtual audience.
Annual Meeting sessions will be delivered in two ways:
- Highly interactive in-person sessions not delivered to the virtual audience
- In-person sessions with panels or speaker presentations which are also available to the virtual audience via livestream
“Our Annual Meeting has long been an opportunity for our members to see each other year after year, fostering the sense of community that the CAS is famous for, said CAS CEO Victor Carter-Bey. We are delighted to be able to offer options for those that want to attend in person or from their own home or office.”
The CAS is committed to following all local health guidelines to protect the health and safety of eventgoers. Therefore, space will be limited, and a sellout is expected, so hopeful attendees are encouraged to register early to secure their spot. Registration opens in August.
For those interested in presenting at the 2021 CAS Annual Meeting, the Call for Presentations will remain open through July 26. The committee seeks submissions for both in-person and virtual sessions.
