2020 Napa/Sonoma Finance Conference

27 & 28 March 2020 | Napa Valley, CA

Important update:

After closely monitoring the developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) through the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have decided to cancel the 2020 FMA/UC Davis Napa/Sonoma Finance Conference. While the CDC currently determines the immediate risk of exposure to the virus to be low in most communities in the U.S., we have decided to cancel with concern for the health and well-being of our members, staff, and partners.

We will issue registration refunds no later than Friday, 20 March.

If you reserved a room at the Harvest Inn under the group rate and would like to keep that reservation, you may do so. Please contact the hotel at [email protected] (preferred) or at 707-963-9463 to confirm your plans by 6pm PDT on Saturday, 14 March. The hotel will automatically cancel your reservation if they do not hear from you on Sunday, 15 March.
