2020 Learning Conference
June 22-24, 2020 Loews Coronado Bay Resort San Diego, CA

Learning Conference 2020

FCC Services' priority is the health and safety of our employees, clients, sponsors and speakers. Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the current precautions being taken by authorities in California to manage this pandemic that prevent large gatherings based on guidance from the CDC, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel the June 22-24, 2020 Learning Conference. Despite hopes of timely reopening business to allow for this conference, the possibility to hold large group gatherings in the State of California prior to June 22-24, 2020 appear highly unlikely.

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus during this timeframe, we feel this is the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, but we know it's the right decision based on the information we have today.

Conference registrations will be automatically canceled and refunded in full. This process may take up to 45 days, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

For those individuals that reserved their hotel room at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort using the online reservation method or called the hotel and reserved your room in the Conference block, FCC Services will notify the hotel to cancel your room reservation. If you made your reservation through other methods (i.e., discount hotel sites, etc.), you will need to contact the hotel directly at 619.424.4000 and cancel your room reservation. We recommend, when doing so, obtain a cancellation number to confirm the room is canceled and that your credit card will not be charged.

We want to thank the Steering Committee for their contributions to this effort, the Speakers who spent time preparing for the event, as well as the attendees that showed their support and patience as we worked through the process of conducting or cancelling the conference.

We look forward to welcoming the Farm Credit community at the 2021 Learning Conference, scheduled for June 21-23, 2021 at the Charlotte Marriott City Center, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Please direct any questions or concerns to Joette Cross, VP Event Management, joette.cross@fccservices.com.

Wishing you all good health and resilience in the days to come.

Hear from 2019 Attendees:

"As a first time attender, I was not sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and knowledge of the speakers! This was an invaluable experience for me, not only because of the learning in the session, but also because of the opportunities to make connections with other professionals in my industry who face the same challenges as I do. I will definitely be attending again!"

"Overall a great conference and experience - everything was organized, flowed well and I think went off great. I enjoyed the topics/content and really thought it was a great experience. Thanks to all those that worked on this event,"

"Great conference for motivation, reality-checking and networking."
