Virtual Conference Support to State Associations,
State Agencies, and Departments of Education

Many state entities have limited budgets and will not be able to offer a state of the art virtual conference for their members due to the cost of virtual platforms and the need to have technical and graphic skills to fully utilize the virtual platform options. For most of our large group members, their conference is their primary source of revenue which enables them to keep their doors open. With this in mind, we would like to offer a scalable option under the COABE mantle good through December 15, 2020 and available again April 1, 2021 through December 15, 2021.
