2020 Annual Conference and Training


The 2020 Annual Conference will take place in Baton Rouge, LA March 30-31st.


Unfortunately due to the continued spread of COVID-19 our board has made the difficult decision to cancel our meeting. We are working with the Academy to issue full refunds to all of you. If you have registered for the conference, we are automatically processing refunds. Our target date is April 1 for refunds to process. If you don’t receive the credit by April 6, please contact us. If you made a hotel reservation in our hotel block, that reservation should be cancelled with no penalty. Please contact the hotel to confirm your cancellation has been processed.

We appreciate all of your interest, and we are so sorry to be unable to bring this event to you, but look forward to seeing everyone for our 2021 conference. Please stay tuned for details on that! Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you have. We are also working with speakers to potentially bring this content to membership virtually, so stay tuned for updates!
