2020 Virtual Conference Attendance Justification Toolkit

This year BCWWA has put together a toolkit to help you highlight the value of the virtual conference & trade show to your employer. In the face of reduced budgets and increased expenditure scrutiny, our association recognizes the challenges that come with securing approval for attending professional development events. We have created this kit to assist you in getting approval to attend our conference.


While nothing can compare to the power of an in-person conference, unprecedented circumstances challenged everyone to find new ways to connect and learn. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that our industry get together to explore new solutions, perspectives and technologies.


We are confident that BCWWA’s 2020 Virtual Conference will provide a valuable and productive platform to connect with manufacturers and suppliers, network with colleagues, engage in educational sessions, and build your skills and industry knowledge.


The toolkit includes: 


Employer Approval Tips – p. 1

Benefits Worksheet – p. 2

Sample Letter to Employer – p. 3
