#CFACon2020 Virtual

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.
