NEW THIS YEAR:
Attendees do not register for classes. On the first day of convention, you simply log in and select the class you wish to attend during that session. There are no class limitations since we are virtual - you are guaranteed access into the live class that you desire. For full list of classes in each session, please check out the preview guide below! Please plan ahead so that you have your supplies ready for each class.

SCHEDULE (all times are EST)
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, after careful consideration, the CCSA is announcing that the in-person 2020 CCSA Annual Convention scheduled for September 11-14, at St. Charles Convention Center, has been canceled. The CCSA will instead deliver a Virtual Annual Convention with date and times to be determined.
This was not an easy decision, but, ultimately the public health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff led the CCSA Board of Directors and the Executive Director to conclude that canceling the face-to-face meeting was the safe and responsible action. Just like you are facing difficult decisions in your business, CCSA must do the same.
While we look forward to a time when we can re-convene the CCSA community face-to-face, the CCSA Board of Directors and staff is exercising its creativity and imagination to deliver a Virtual CCSA Annual Convention that will exceed your expectations! CCSA will start working immediately to begin planning the event and will share details with you as soon as possible. The virtual convention will have a lot of the same great content and opportunities to connect that was planned for St. Charles. We will be reaching out with specific communication with our teachers and suppliers. If you were already registered to attend during the face-to-face CCSA Annual Convention in St. Charles, you will be receiving a separate communication about your registration. CCSA will host a call with suppliers in the next week to confirm your interest and desired level of participation.
Thank you again for being part of the CCSA community. Please be patient with us as we make this transition and deliver the details. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during these unprecedented times.
