Expanded Programming

Accessible to a broader interest within companies instead of managing limited access for participants due to travel restrictions, company policies, financial hardship, budget constraints, or health concerns.

Deeply Reduced Expenses

Eliminated aspects associated with a physical event include shipping, travel, lodging, meals, etc. for all our participants for greater financial efficiency sensitive to interests in more responsible spending.

Expanded Participation

Averaging 30% of membership companies in attendance each year due to schedules, costs and interest, a broadened participation is made possible with schedule flexibility and diverse topics for targeted audiences including students, prospective employees, Wall Dogs, builders, designers and more not locked into a specific geographic location or economic condition.

Broadened Education Topics

Without concern for the cost of physical space and more flexibility for the daily schedule, we are free to offer laser-focused seminars for very specific attendee groups like safety directors, CFOs, field personnel and much more, including specific CEO discussion groups.

Maintained Personal Touch

Pre-registered attendees will receive a hospitality package from the CFA filled with giveaways from sponsors and the association. This package will include items you would normally receive by attending an in-person event and some that will enhance your virtual experience.

Reduced Registration Fees

Beyond travel and lodging, we have dramatically reduced registration fees to encourage a greater number of participants as we are uncoupled from the minimum expense budgets of facilities.

Concierge Meeting Services

Although we have chosen a simple to use and user friendly platform, we understand the reality of those who may have difficulty with technology. Our staff and concierge tech personnel will be dedicated before and during the event to ensure a successful user experience for everyone who can meet the minimum technical requirements at home or in the office; A computer or laptop with an internet connection and audio abilities. We also recommend using headphones to improve your experience.

The context of this current education and travel environment is temporary and yet, it is our opportunity to do something together unique and impacting in response. We have one chance to define how this historic moment will be reflected on the future of who we are as an organization and industry. Let's make the most of it today while looking forward to being together again in person next year.
