EXPO 2020 Cancelled

Aug. 26, 2020

The continuing crisis in relation to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has made it necessary for us to cancel the 2020 Community Transportation EXPO. Coming to this decision has not been easy, but the concerns for the health and safety of our attendees left us no other choice.

Those that are currently registered for EXPO 2020 will receive an email detailing options for carrying over your registration to EXPO 2021 or requesting a refund of registration fees. We will now be offering a virtual event during the November dates that had been selected for the postponed EXPO (Nov. 16 – 19). The November online event will focus mainly on offering our members a chance to obtain or renew their CTAA certifications so there will be no lapse in credentials.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We are looking forward to hosting you in Richmond, Va., June 13 – 17 2021, once the global health pandemic passes.

Contact Charles Dickson at dickson@ctaa.org or 202.247.8356 with additional questions.
