CESDA Annual Conference 2020


Hello CESDA Members and Partners;

As we, like you, continue to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to follow up with communication regarding our concerns related to the safety of our institutional policies restricting the participation of travel and events. The CESDA team has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 annual conference. We are currently working on options for offering credits or refunds to any participants who have registered for the conference.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact the conference chairs or the CESDA chair listed below.

Sharon Simmons, CESDA Chair


Date: April 22-24, 2020
Event Venue: The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, Avon, Colorado

Please join us as we celebrate another great year of CESDA at our Annual Conference.  This year's agenda promises to be inspirational and high-impact with sessions focused to enhance attendees personally and professionally.


In addition to the strong professional development and networking opportunities that are a part of every conference, this conference is infused with extra celebration.  We will be taking a look back at the year in review, recognizing and honoring the people that have sustained this organization, as well as commending our 2019 scholarship winners. 


Please join us in our celebration!
