CASA Wraps Up Successful Virtual Annual Conference
While the 2020 CASA Annual Conference looked a little different this year, we are proud to report that the transition to a virtual event was a resounding success! The two-day event was well attended with nearly 250 participants and several preeminent speakers who shared insights on how the economy and market have changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the science of implicit bias, political implications of the pandemic and what to expect heading into the November election.
The conference kicked off Wednesday, August 12, with keynote speaker Larry Adam from Raymond James, followed by a COVID-19 panel, lunchtime water trivia, and the ever-popular roundtable sessions. The day concluded with three-afternoon committee meetings.
Thursday opened with a virtual women’s networking breakfast/coffee and a welcome from CASA’s new president, Jason Dow, before keynote speakers Cassandra Pye and Bruce Mehlman. Attendees were virtually introduced to this year’s CASA Education Foundation Scholarship recipients and received state and federal updates during the luncheon program. The conference wrapped up with a panel on Where Engineering and Finance Meet and CASA’s state legislative committee meeting.
Presentations and materials from the conference are available online for those who registered for the Annual Conference. Thank you, everyone, who joined us virtually!
