It is with a heavy heart that the League of Arizona Cities and Towns has decided to cancel our 2020 League Annual Conference at the Renaissance in Glendale. This decision comes after careful consideration on how we might conduct the conference under the current and probable health and social distancing guidelines that are very likely to remain in place through the summer.
It has become increasingly clear that we cannot safely convene the Annual Conference, an event of more than 1200 city and town officials, students, businesses and legislators, without severely compromising the high-quality conference that we are committed to hosting.
Even with no large event in 2020, the League remains committed to providing sessions and trainings via webinar through the summer and into the fall to provide you with opportunities to learn and stay connected. This was a very difficult decision and it is our firm intent to come back strong in 2021 when we hold the Annual Conference in Phoenix at the Arizona Biltmore.
If you have any questions, thoughts or comments, please feel free to reach out to me or any of our staff and we will be happy to connect with you.
