In response to COVID-19, the CoSN Board made the decision on March 11 to transform the previously scheduled in-person event to a virtual conference, CoSN2020: A Breakthrough Virtual Experience. Transitioning the conference to a virtual setting was a complex decision. First and foremost, this was done with consideration for our registrants’ safety based on official health recommendations and the newly established District of Columbia health guidance. And second, it was based on the understanding of what school system leaders are facing in their own community, including preparation for e-Learning, endless meetings, and local district policies restricting travel.
The virtual experience will begin on March 16 with our General Session keynote speakers kicking it off with as previously scheduled sessions at 1:00pm ET:
The experience continues May 19-21 with the full virtual conference that will mirror our previously planned in-person event – but now from the comfort of your own desk! No travel required. If you are already registered for the conference, we will be sending out links next week, prior to each session and more details in the coming days on the May event.
If you weren’t registered for the CoSN2020, stay tuned for more information on CoSN2020: A Breakthrough Virtual Experience.
COVID-19 Cancellation Policy Amendment:
CoSN2020 participants will be automatically enrolled in the virtual opportunity and provided with a $200 credit towards any CoSN learning opportunity in the next 12 months, except CTO Clinics, including registration to CoSN2021 in Austin, Texas.
