CCA cancels annual conference over fear of coronavirus


John Bockstael, chair of the CCA, sent out a letter to members of the association to explain the decision to cancel the annual conference. 

The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) has cancelled its annual conference set to take place in San Diego March 15-18.

“Following emergency meetings held over the weekend, the CCA board of directors made the decision to cancel the San Diego conference and business meetings,” explains the letter sent to members by John Bockstael, chair of the CCA, on March 9. “The vote was overwhelmingly in favour of cancelling the events with the overriding objective to protect you – our delegates, staff and the association – from risks associated with the coronavirus.”

All activities included in the conference have been cancelled including the zoo tour and golf tournament. Registration will be cancelled and reimbursed.

CCA recommends anyone not still planning to travel to San Diego to contact the hotel and airlines to try to minimize any penalties.
