Dear ACTLA,

WE'VE APPRECIATED YOUR PATIENCE AND HOPE THAT YOU’RE STAYING SAFE AND HEALTHY. ON BEHALF OF THE ACTLA BOARDWE INFORM YOU THAT, DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND OUR COLLECTIVE RESTRICTIONS, THE ACTLA 46TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN BERKELEY, CA FOR APRIL 2020 IS CANCELED. WE SOUGHT AND HAVE COME TO A RESOLUTION THAT PRESERVES OUR BELOVED ASSOCIATION AND ITS MEMBERS. 

OUR CONFERENCE WAS GOING TO BE EXCELLENT, WITH EXPERTISE FROM KEYNOTE SPEAKER DR. DARLA COOPER, NUMEROUS TUTORING AND LEARNING ASSISTANCE EXPERT PRESENTERS, CLADEA FELLOWS AND ELDERS, AND AN ENTHUSIASTIC GROUP OF EMERGING PROFESSIONALS AND STUDENTS. WE ARE DISAPPOINTED THAT WE ARE NOT ABLE TO HOST OUR CONFERENCE IN A FACE TO FACE MANNER WHERE WE BUILD COMMUNITY, SHARE EXPERTISE, AND CHART THE FUTURE OF OUR DISCIPLINE/FIELD. THIS UNPRECEDENTED PERIOD IS TESTING OUR RESOLVE AS A PEOPLE AND AS PROFESSIONALS WHOM ARE INTRICATE TO THE ACADEMIC SUPPORT AND LEARNING OF STUDENTS. AS WE SETTLE INTO OUR NEW NORMAL IN THE COMING WEEKS, WE WILL REACH OUT TO YOU AGAIN WITH ALTERNATIVE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNITY BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through the changing nature of this COVID-19 pandemic and the effect on all of us. The ACTLA Board is pleased to share with all of our 2020 Conference registrants that we will be issuing full conference registration refunds for the cancelled 2020 Conference.CLICK HERE  


Please continue to take care of yourselves and your colleagues and we look forward to engaging with you very soon. If you have any inquiries, please contact actla.learn@gmail.com
