A Note from our 2021 CEC Conference Chairs

You spoke, we listened. Due to the ongoing pandemic, unemployment and tight budgets, the CEC team has made the difficult decision to postpone our traditional 3-day Cascadia Educational Conference until 2022. Instead, please join us March 17 for a collaborative “State of the Industry” event hosted by the Cascadia Educational Conference Committee.
