Conference Cancellations and Reschedules

Undeniably, COVID-19 has had a massive impact on the day-to-day workings of the business world (click here to read about some of the impacts, and how VTR is helping), and amidst all the chaos and confusion, it's easy to lose track of important events and deadlines. Many business professionals rely on conferences and other organizational events to meet their continuing education needs, but because of the virus, a large number of such conferences have been moved to a virtual format, postponed or canceled altogether. In order to help curb a bit of the confusion, we've compiled a list of important events for HR professionals, members of the American Payroll Association, and certified public accountants in order to clarify whether they have been canceled, postponed or are still continuing as planned.

Note: Make sure to check back often, as this list is subject to change whenever more information comes out. You can subscribe below to receive updates on conferences in real-time.
