POSTPONED 2020 Annual Conference

Executive Board and Delegate Action

2020 Annual Conference Postponed

The following email information was provided by William Ornelas, Los Angeles and Orange Area Chapter Delegate serving on the Executive Board.


Please forward the following information to our chapter board members, agency and vendor members as soon as possible. On June 4, 2020, the Executive Board met to discuss the gravity of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of MSA members, and COVID-19 impact on the scheduled 2020 Annual Conference. This conference was scheduled to be held in San Diego and sponsored by the San Diego Chapter. Following considerable discussion, it was decided by the Executive Board and its Chapter Delegates to postpone the 2020 San Diego conference 2021.

Annual conference arrangements are customarily scheduled in the future at least four years in advance. Postponing the San Diego conference to 2021 caused the following Annual Conferences to move forward by one year. The new schedule was agreed upon by each of the affected chapter leaders.

The new schedule is as follows: San Diego Chapter – 2021, Ventura Chapter 2022, Arizona Chapter 2023, and Los Angeles and Orange Area Chapter 2024.

A full report on the Executive Board meeting and its actions will be provided to members early next week.
