Due to challenges brought on by COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that the AVECO Board must announce the cancellation of our 2020 annual conference which was to take place July 13th – 16th in Cleveland, OH.  After monitoring the lifting of health restrictions on the federal and state levels, listening to comments from our members on new budget restrictions, considering the travel restrictions placed on our Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) colleagues and lengthy discussions with the hotel, the board felt it best to cancel this year’s week long training. 


Please click here to read a letter from our president, Danielle Downs, which includes important information related to refunds and room cancellations.

The board will continue to work throughout the year to provide our members and colleagues with valuable content in the current year, and for our 2021 conference as we return to St. Louis. 

We hope you are doing well and staying safe and healthy!
