NEWS REGARDING 2020 CONFERENCE
The WJCIA board met via Zoom on June 12, 2020 and made the difficult decision to cancel our annual fall conference that was scheduled for September 16, 17, 18, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly, but we found it was necessary in considering the health and safety of everyone involved and attending. Please know that it is our priority to try and provide opportunities for our membership to have opportunities to earn CEU’s for license renewal. We are in the process of scheduling and working out all of those details and will keep you updated as that information is solidified. In the future, we will also provide an update regarding membership, elections and our annual meeting that are all typically held at conference. Please continue to watch the website and/or our Facebook page for further updates.
