Did You Catch the CASA Annual Conference Survey?
Earlier this week CASA distributed a member survey to determine our members’ level of comfort in attending an in-person Annual Conference in 2021, currently scheduled for August 11-13 in San Diego. In order to better inform our decision about whether to host our first live event in more than a year, we would first like to get our members’ perspectives on the conference, and specifically your comfort level and availability to attend an in-person event. If you can, please fill out the brief survey. Your valuable feedback will help us to determine best steps moving forward!
