CPRS Conference & Expo

2021 CONNECTIONS is going Virtual!
After a great deal of surveying, discussion, re-booking and planning, we have made the decision to host our 2021 CPRS Conference & Expo virtually, March 22-26, 2021.  While we'd much rather celebrate our CONNECTIONS and the 75th birthday of our association in person, we know that the health and safety of our members, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and staff is most important.  

CONNECTIONS Virtual, March 22-26, 2021
Watch for more information coming soon including registration pricing, call for sessions, sponsorship opportunities, Expo specifics and yes, even some fun ways to connect.  Stay tuned!

CPRS CONNECTIONS dates – mark your calendars now:
2021       March 22-26, 2021 – From the comfort of your own desk!
2022       March 8-11, 2022 – Sacramento
2023       April 3-6, 2023 – San Diego

As always, connect with any one of us at HQ with any questions, concerns or even those fun ideas to help us make CONNECTIONS Virtual a one-of-a-kind experience!
