 Cancellation of 2020 AFCA/AFDA Leadership Conference

As you all know we are facing unprecedented and uncertain times in our country. We are currently in the throes of a pandemic that has led to the temporary shuttering of numerous businesses in our respective communities. The State of Arizona has just announced a $1 billion budget shortfall for next year, and many of our municipalities are freezing and/or cutting budgets due to sales tax shortfalls. 

While our July AFCA/AFDA Leadership conference is over two months away, it remains unclear when restrictions will be lifted. Once lifted, we have no idea how long it will take for the economy and our agencies to recover. To that end, the Executive Boards of the AFCA and AFOA have decided to cancel the July conference. This is not a decision that we made lightly, however we feel it is in everyone's best interest not to move forward at this time.

The Renaissance Hotel in Glendale was very gracious in working with us and did not assess any penalties. To that end, we did extend our contract with them for an additional year to make up for the loss of 2020. 

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you all at the July 2021 AFCA/AFDA Leadership Conference.
