California Community Colleges Veterans Symposium

Dear 2020 Veterans Symposium Attendees,

Thank you for your planned participation at our rescheduled 2020 Veterans Symposium that was due to take place from October 12-13, 2020 in Newport Beach. Many of you have been in touch with questions regarding the status of the event in relation to COVID-19, so we wanted to provide an update: the conference committee has recently made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s conference. At this time, we have not determined if the event will be rescheduled. Please know we are working diligently on this and will update everyone as soon as possible. 

We have been closely monitoring statewide updates and responses to COVID-19, as well as guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health officials, and epidemiology experts. Through evaluation of the current circumstances, the conference committee, our sponsors, and our major partners have decided that cancelling the Fall event is the appropriate step to ensuring the health and wellbeing of our community members and staff.

Sponsorship Information:

  • Exhibitor and sponsorship fees will be refunded in full (please email Constance Crawford at
  • We appreciate our partners and look forward to partnering together on future events.

We understand this news may come as a disappointment to many of you and we share in that disappointment, but we also appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we prioritize the health and safety of all attendees.
