Dear ConnCASE Presenters and Vendors:


Given the increased concerns and circumstances around the Coronavirus, and in response to Governor Lamont’s State of Emergency and other recommendations, we wanted to share our plans for ConnCASE’s upcoming Legal Conference.




To ensure the safety and well-being of our members, the March Legal Conference on March 26 – 27, 2020 will be postponed.   We are diligently working with the Hotel and Keynote speaker to identify dates rescheduling and will survey the membership and attendees in the next few days with potential dates.   We will continue to monitor both state and health official recommendations and will communicate scheduling changes with all of you.  All updates will be shared with you via email and on our social media sites.


Joseph Lucibello, ConnCASE President, will be in touch with our volunteers directly who chair committees for next steps and further guidance.


We apologize for this interruption, but the safety of our members and their families is our first priority. Stay safe and well wishes for you and your families.


Joseph Lucibello


ConnCASE President
