ATA61: A
Team Effort

W

e did it! We reached the tail
end of what's turned out to be
quite a year, and we had a very
successful virtual Annual Conference.
While I never expected to organize a fully
virtual conference, it was truly a pleasure
to take on this challenge on behalf of
our members. Thanks to the more than
1,500 attendees, the countless hours from
volunteers, and the intensive behind-thescenes work of the ATA Headquarters
staff, it was definitely a team effort!
While this year has taught us a lot
about being resilient, it has also provided
a lesson to those of us in ATA leadership
to see how we can best serve members in
a way that will add value to your lives and
careers while supporting you wherever
you are.
Even though we couldn't put on a
conference that would come close to the
experience of meeting in person, we did
our best to give attendees a memorable
experience with networking events, 120
top-notch educational sessions, and more.
Don't forget that those who registered for
the conference will have a minimum of six
months of access to the recorded sessions.
If you didn't have the chance to attend,
you can still purchase the conference
package, as well as individual Advanced
Skills and Training (AST) Day sessions-
three-hour workshops that are a deeper
dive into a specific, advanced topic.

There's a little something for everyone! As
always, members receive a reduced rate
on all professional development offerings,
so look for more information in ATA
Newsbriefs and on ATA's website.
If you joined us live for ATA61, I hope
you had the chance to take advantage of
the Exhibit Hall and Job Fair. I have to
say, I was happy that I didn't have to run
to the Exhibit Hall on the last day this
year just to meet with vendors before
everything closed down. It was all at
my fingertips and I could peruse their
offerings on my own time. I also found
the Job Fair easy to maneuver. Avoiding
long lines was a definite plus of the
virtual experience! I hope you had the
same experience.

While this year has taught us a
lot about being resilient, it has
also provided a lesson to those of
us in ATA leadership to see how
we can best serve members.

If you would like to " re-live " the
conference experience, be sure to visit
ATA's YouTube channel and check out the
conference video from this year's Annual
Conference. We got a chance to see various
colleagues' " conference in your home
office " experiences and catch an exciting
glimpse into ATA62 in Minneapolis!
Looking ahead to next year, we're
planning for a hybrid conference for
ATA62. As we all know, virtual events
are here to stay. So, while we certainly
hope you'll make plans to join us in
person next year in Minneapolis, we'll
try to accommodate those who cannot
make it. Watch for more details in the
coming months.
Lastly, thank you all for your support.
This year hasn't been an easy one, but we
made it through together, and we've all
learned resiliency and ingenuity in a time
when so many major events were taking
place in the world. We couldn't have
had such a wonderful virtual conference
without your support and encouragement,
so thank you, thank you, thank you!
