2020 TOCA Annual Meeting Goes Virtual

By Kristy Mach, TOCA Executive Director

The “Journey to Denver” for the TOCA Annual Meeting is taking a long, strange trip – including all the backroads. Our arrival in Denver is now slated for May 2021. This year, we’re going to meet up on the virtual highway and gather via Zoom.

It is extremely disappointing that we can’t meet in person this year, but the smiles and virtual embrace will be the same in our virtual format. The TOCA virtual conference will take place Sept. 9-11, and culminate, as always, with the announcement of the Gardner Awards and a toast to everyone working in green industry communications.
