Virtual Exhibits: 
CBA is offering those who will be exhibiting at CUA the opportunity to have the publisher’s name with a link posted on the 2024 Exhibitor web page, free of charge. The link could be to your catalog or the publisher’s web page. In addition, we would ask that you provide a discount code for CBA members who are attending the Meeting virtually. This will be included on the virtual Exhibitor page.

We also would like to offer you the opportunity to interview your leading authors via our CBA Zoom account that our members can join in live on Facebook or watch as a recorded event. If that is something you might be interested in participating, please contact Archie Wright, Executive Director of CBA at wrightat@cua.edu.  

Virtual exhibits links should be sent with the publisher’s name to 
cba-office@cua.edu on or before June 30.

Thank you for your support of the CBA.  I look forward to seeing you in DC.
