Event Description

*January 11, 2022 Update*

The CTA board voted to transition the upcoming 2022 CTA Issues Conference scheduled for January 21-23 to a virtual format. We are working out the details for the virtual conference, and plan to hold the virtual version of 2022 CTA Issues Conference on the same date as the in-person event.  We will post additional details regarding the virtual conference as they become available.

All registered attendees as of January 11th were sent an email regarding the transition of this conference to a virtual format. All hotel reservations made as part of our conference block have been canceled. If you’d still like to go to Las Vegas on your own, the Tropicana is offering a special rate. Click here to rebook at a special rate for the Tropicana Las Vegas.
