About the Conference

Welcome to CAEH’s first virtual Conference

We don’t know how safe it will be by November to gather in-person, so we made the decision to make CAEH21 a virtual conference.

We know how important it is for all of us to connect, learn, be inspired and support each other, so join us at CAEH21 for an opportunity to reconnect, recharge, and rebuild!
