Annual Meeting

2021 Program

Updated: October 25, 2021


Please note:  CCUBC 2021 Annual Meeting will be held virtually via Zoom. Registration is free for members in good standings, but you need to register for logistics reasons. For convenience and to avoid confusion it was decided to create a Zoom link for each day rather than a link for each session. The two Zoom links for Thursday and Friday Sessions will be forwarded closer to the meeting date to those who registered for the meeting. Please contact Mrs. Wafaa Antonious, CCUBC Secretariat if you have any concerns or questions related to the meeting logistics.
