The CAS Will Hold Its 2021 Annual Meeting in Person

The CAS is excited to announce that the 2021 CAS Annual Meeting will be a hybrid event with options for in-person or virtual attendance. The in-person component will be held in California at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina from Nov. 7-10, 2021. With livestreaming over multiple days and in two different rooms, virtual attendees will have more opportunities to participate than ever before.

“After more than a year of virtual events, I’m ecstatic to have the chance to end my presidential term at an in-person Annual Meeting,” said CAS President Jessica Leong. “I am especially looking forward to welcoming and congratulating our new Fellows and Associates in person.”

The 2021 Annual Meeting will feature an onsite experience that provides more ways for attendees to engage with each other during sessions and networking events, both of which will enhance learning opportunities and the onsite experience. These networking opportunities will include connecting with Regional Affiliate members, first-time attendees, industry peers and DE&I affiliates’ members. In-person sessions will have significantly enhanced group interaction as part of the program and expanded CE opportunities not available to the virtual audience.

Annual Meeting sessions will be delivered in two ways:

  • In-person panels and speaker presentations livestreamed to the virtual audience.
  • Highly interactive sessions delivered in person only.

“Our Annual Meeting has long been an opportunity for our members to see each other year after year, fostering the sense of community that the CAS is famous for,” said CAS CEO Victor Carter-Bey. “We are delighted to be able to offer options for those that want to attend in person or from their own homes or offices.”

The CAS is committed to following all local health guidelines to protect the health and safety of eventgoers. Space will be limited, and a sellout is expected, so hopeful attendees are encouraged to register early to secure their spot. Registration opened August 2021.
