Thank you to our Educational Sponsors and Vendors who have already signed up for the upcoming COAA Conference August 17-21, 2020.  The COAA Board has made the decision to postpone the 2020 COAA Education Conference (originally scheduled for May 4-8). Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of everyone involved, and while we regret having to postpone, this decision aligns with the current guidelines and recommendations both from the CDC and the State of Alabama.
