CCA and Member Price
Booth assignments are made based on membership status and participation in Association events throughout the year including event sponsorship, attendance at Allied Industry meetings, participating in scholarship interviews, assisting with fundraisers for scholarships or serving in a leadership role. While we value all industry partners, organizations that participate more in the CCA are given priority in terms of booth placement. Initial booth space reservations will be taken through Wednesday, October 11. Booths reserved after this date can not be guaranteed.
