Due to our concern for your health and safety amid the pandemic, the COSA Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to reschedule the fall 2020 conference to 2021. Mark your calendars for October 11-13, 2021 at the beautiful Grand Hyatt in Vail.
Webinar with Nina Simon
In place of the conference this fall, we’re hard at work planning a fantastic webinar with keynote speaker Nina Simon. Nina is author of the best-selling books "The Participatory Museum" and "The Art of Relevance" and is the CEO of OF/BY/FOR ALL, a global nonprofit that creates digital tools to help civic and cultural organizations become more inclusive, relevant, and sustainable. At this moment in history, we all know that relevance is more urgent than ever.
Stay tuned for more details.
COSA is seeking sponsors for the event. If you or your organization would like to contribute, please see the Sponsorship page.
