COVID-19 Resources

Message from CAC President & CEO 
Lesya Balych-Cooper

The world has changed significantly. I take great pride in seeing the caring and proactive response of our member companies in dealing with this unprecedented situation.

CAC staff is working remotely and will continue to be available to support our members as we can and as needed. With respect to upcoming events:

  • Strategic Planning Session, attended by the Board, will take place later in the year.
  • Other upcoming Board and Committee calls, the Annual Meeting (June 26) and the CAC Conference (Sept.21) will remain in the calendar as planned for now.
  • CAC will continue to review and communicate additional changes as necessary.

If you have any questions, concerns, or if there is anything else CAC can do to support you through this challenging time, email:  Here is a list of links below to COVID-19 specific resources which we feel may be helpful.
