2020 Virtual Conference & Trade Show

 There is a lot of interest in Empowering Young Families Unite, Inspire Uplift, CWA’s 28th Annual Conference and Trade Show, on a virtual platform. We look forward each year to the opportunity to spend a few days together learning from state and national experts, sharing our collective expertise, networking and meeting with colleagues, and participating in healthy activities and fun. It will be different this year since we cannot be in the same physical location, but assisted by technology, we can do all that that, from our clinic, office, or anywhere. With no travel and flexibility, we look forward to new opportunities for WIC colleagues from across the US, and state and national partners who serve young families, joining us as we collectively support our communities.

Sessions will be both live and on-demand, with all speakers available for live discussion and online access during their scheduled presentation time. The Virtual Trade Show will run the full conference week with links to company videos, materials on the platform, and live chat and meeting opportunities. Popular activities at the conference will continue including the Scavenger Hunt, contests and physical activities. Wear active wear! Post conference, all presentations and trade show materials will be available on the conference platform until Oct. 28.

Each attendee will register for the conference with your own email address and will have access to the Virtual Conference Platform. The conference platform will provide entrance to sessions, activities and prize drawings and for continuing education units, which over 25 CE units for RDs, IBCLCs, and RNs. We will provide you detailed instructions on how to access and navigate the platform prior to the event. We look forward to seeing you as we Unite Inspire and Uplift ourselves on behalf of young families!
