Dear CAPIO Members and Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing the cancellation of
our rescheduled June conference. As we all are managing
this health crisis together, the need for physical distancing and
other COVID-related protocols remain.
As you might imagine, this is devastating news. There nothing
more energizing for our profession than getting together at the
conference to learn from each other. Our communities’
health is vitally important.
Managing this pandemic is ever-changing and there are many
unknowns on how we reopen our economy. As a result, at
the most recent board meeting, the Board of Directors made this
decision to cancel unanimously.
Trainings will continue
CAPIO will continue to be here to serve you and will pivot our
training to meet the needs of the time.
We hope you’ve had a chance to view some of our recent COVID-19
related webinars offered free to members and non-members.
If you’re interested in catching up on any you missed, visit our webinar page here.
As we begin to navigate this new reality, we will continue our
training opportunities virtually – focusing on content you would
like to see including turning many of the sessions from the
2020 Conference into training you can view from your desk.
We have amazing projects that have been submitted and we can’t
wait to highlight them! Our Awards program will go on and
we will unveil our plan for recognition very soon. We will notify
finalists in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for
updates on the program through our emails and on our

virtual learning, please take a few moments to answer our
SURVEY. Before you take the survey, consider
- CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS: CAPIO will transfer your
conference fees to the 2021 Conference scheduled for April 26-29,
2021 at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic
Valley. If you transfer your fees, your conference is
pre-paid even if 2021 conference registration prices increase.
Alternatively, We can refund your conference fees in full. Please
answer our SURVEY to let us
know which option you prefer.
- CONFERENCE SPONSORS: We encourage you to transfer
your funds to sponsor our 2021 conference. For all
sponsors selecting this option, we will recognize your
company as a sponsor during an upcoming training.
The recognition can be in the form of brief commercial or company
ad at the beginning of the webinar. Sponsors may also request a
full refund of their sponsor fees and any registration fees they
have paid. Please answer our SURVEY to let us
know which option you prefer.
In May, I’ll be transitioning the CAPIO reigns to Maurice
Chaney as the incoming president. He will join a fantastic
group of incoming and current board members who will continue to
lead this organization with a focus on serving you – our
membership. I continue my role as past president.
As my president term ends, I am grateful for each one of
you. We are in this together – and this crisis will bring
us even closer.
We will have more to celebrate when we reconvene in 2021, which
happens to be the 50th Anniversary of the founding of
2019-2020 CAPIO President
