The Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) has made the decision to cancel its 2020 Annual Conference & Exhibition, scheduled for May 30 through June 3, 2020, in Washington, D.C.
CFMA’s leadership has been closely monitoring updates and recommendations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), federal and local governments and recent travel advisories and restrictions within the United States and globally—all of which have factored into this unfortunate decision.
"The health, safety and welfare of our members, exhibitors, staff and other stakeholders are of the utmost importance," said CFMA President and Chief Executive Officer Stuart Binstock. "These are uncertain times that will have a profound impact on the economy, the construction industry, and our members’ companies. Even as we eventually return to some sense of normalcy, it won’t immediately be business as usual. Therefore, it is in everyone’s best interest to cancel this event and help our members focus on their jobs and companies."
While this in-person event will not be rescheduled, CFMA is exploring the option of hosting a virtual conference and hopes to have more details within the next 1 to 2 weeks.
As more details regarding the virtual conference become available, CFMA will update conference.cfma.org with the latest information.
