AzBA 2020 Convention Postponed
At AzBA, our number one priority is our members. As essential service providers, your commitment to customers and the community cannot be overstated or over supported. The AzBA staff is working diligently to support all of our members as we embark on unprecedented demands outlined in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, CARES Act, and Payroll Protection Program.
Due to the extended closure of the Enchantment and commitment to prolonged social distancing, we are unable to identify exact dates for the next meeting for a convention. We are working closely with our partners at the Enchantment Group on the possibility of alternative dates. For now, we are focusing 100% of our time, attention, and energy on supporting our members. We are here to help so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
If you have already registered for the 2020 convention you will receive communication this week on the logistics regarding the postponement.
Be assured there is nothing you need to do at this time.
