"Leading the Challenge"
Dynamic Online Conference
June 9-12, 2020

CPA is celebrating our 30th annual conference

Is there a better way to honor our history than to simultaneously embrace a new and evolving future?

Conference Keynotes and Workshops

With your help, we’ve narrowed the number of workshop sessions and designed a conference model that will still focus on the essential prevention priorities in the state of Pennsylvania; and make sure that you get the tools and resources you need to support families and communities across the state.

Each 60 minute workshop and keynote session will now include two parts.

  • Part one will consist of an extraordinary 30 minute video from one of our awesome presenters sharing the information they deem most essential to their topic. As a participant, you will have access to the video, their slides, handouts, and any other links they want to share. You will also have an easy way to comment on what you’re watching and to ask questions.
  • Part two will be a live, hosted chat between you and the well-prepared presenter (who who will be seeing your comments and questions in real time) and all of your colleagues who are there with you!

Virtual Conference Hub

And, just to make is as easy as possible, we’re setting up a special Virtual Conference Hub that will help ensure that you have everything you need to participate in each session.
