The 2020 Annual Conference was definitely different from any that CALSAGA has held. The decision to hold the conference in a virtual format was made as a safety precaution for our attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, staff and the public.

We appreciate our conference speakers who, despite the change in format, provided great content and important information that our members need in order to operate their businesses as efficiently as possible and to stay in compliance! Many of our presenters conducted Live Q&A sessions to ensure that attendees still had the opportunity for engagement. In addition, the community board and chat features helped us all feel a little more connected during this strange and unprecedented time.

For the first time in conference history, the closing session featured a roundtable discussion with our experts on the subjects of BSIS Compliance, Insurance, Human Resources and Legal.

If you were registered for the conference, you will have access to watch the sessions and visit the Virtual Exhibitor Hall until Thursday, November 5th.

Attendees were able to visit our sponsors and vendors through the Virtual Exhibit Hall. In their virtual booth, sponsors and vendors were able to share product and service videos, chat with interested attendees, offer promotions and contests and more!
