We regret to inform you that the 2020 ACASA Anti-Sexual Violence Conference has been postponed until 2021 due to concerns of COVID-19. At ACASA, it is our first priority to ensure the safety and well-being of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff. We are saddened to make this decision; however, we feel that it is in the best interest of everyone.
On a brighter note, we are in the planning stages of creating an online, one-day conference this fall. We will be announcing more details in the very near future. We are excited about providing this opportunity and much like our original plans for the in-person conference, we will not be providing the typical online training experience. We are continuing to be creative and innovative in our presentations and interactive features to provide you with an excellent and impactful learning opportunity.
In essence, you are now getting TWO amazing and powerful conferences! We WILL still be providing our original in-person conference next year as planned as well as an interactive and powerful online conference this year! Stay tuned for more information and registration announcements coming soon!
Please be advised, the Arkansas Commission on Child Abuse, Rape and Domestic Violence Hospital Protocol Conference that was scheduled in conjunction with ours has been postponed as well.
