Registration Is Open for JA National Convention
The third annual Jewelers of America National Convention will be held virtually July 19-20.
The education-focused event will be held virtually for the second year in a row, running from July 19 to 20.
The theme of this year’s convention is “Coming into Focus.”
“COVID-19 is keeping us from coming together under one roof; however, that won’t stop us from uniting the entire industry for two great days of interaction, education and networking,” said JA President and CEO David J. Bonaparte in a press release about the event.
“With the crisis mode in the rearview mirror, we are helping the industry focus on the parts of their business that will help them succeed long-term. Success is ‘coming into focus’ and education empowers us to see things more clearly.”
Keynote speaker Marilyn Sherman will open the two-day event with a live presentation titled, “Back to the New Future: Front-Row Strategies for Success.”
Sherman will discuss how to strategize for success, focus on energy management, and more.
In addition, there will be several breakout sessions, covering a range of topics from social media and employment law to the diamond market and diversity in the workplace.
For a full list of sessions, visit the JA National Convention website.
In honor of JA’s 115th anniversary, the organization will send “experience boxes” to the first 115 guests who register, with a limit of two per company.
The boxes will be filled with treats, tea, and other goodies to celebrate the convention.
Registration is open to employees of JA Member companies.
If a business is not a JA member, qualified companies can receive a free membership through Dec. 31 when registering for the National Convention.
