Adapting & Overcoming Adversity
 2021 Winter Conference
January 12 - 14, 2021

Same Great Conference - New Location - The 2021 Winter Conference will be a
hybrid of the conference you are used to attending in Athens. Due to  Covid-19 restrictions at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, GPCA had to relocate
´╗┐the conference for 2021. 

The Dalton Convention Center has easy access from I-75 and offers ample FREE parking and an abundance of meeting space so that we will be able to follow CDC and State guidelines for social distancing.  In-person attendance will be limited to 350
attendees per day. Registration must be completed in advance. 

NO ON-SITE registration will be available. 
In addition to the in-person attendance, we will also be offering the                   
conference virtually via Zoom.   

Register early as we expect in-person attendance to fill quickly.
