CWMA Events 2021
We had a very successful 2020 moving to virtual formats and were able to put on more events throughout the year. We will keep the momentum going in 2021 and foresee both virtual and in person events for the far-ahead future. In addition to our regular schedule of Networking/Speaker events, watch for additional single topic/presenter events with time for more open discussion.
Your Health & Safety is really important to us as we plan our events within the advice of the BCCDC. We are excited to return to in-person events but are practical this may take longer than anticipated. We also know now that many of our members really appreciate the virtual option, so that will continue on after we are back together in person.
Times are Pacific Time Zone.
