2020 CCA Annual Convention CANCELLED

Due to COVID-19 Concerns

After careful consideration, the CCA Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the 41st Annual CCA Convention which was to be held at the Embassy Suites in Scottsdale, Arizona, October 1-4, 2020.  While it was a difficult decision to cancel the convention, the health and safety of CCA members and attendees was paramount. Cancelling the 2020 convention was determined by the CCA Board of Directors as the only prudent option after careful consideration.

We know many displayers and trade table holders have invested considerable time and effort in planning for the 2020 convention.  We extend our sincere “thank you” for all of your hard work and hope you will consider displaying and/or having a trade table at the CCA 2021 Convention, Noblesville, Indiana.  Please also note the CCA will be coming back to Scottsdale, Arizona having re-booked the Embassy Suites for the CCA 2023 Annual Convention.

We understand many of you have questions about the CCA next steps, including the refund process. Please read the following to address concerns and provide more information.

Colt Collectors 2021 Convention Scottsdale Arizona

To All of Our Wonderful Members:

Unfortunately, due to our current pandemic, the Board of Directors has had to make a difficult decision in regards to our 2020 Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona. As much as we are all going to miss this year’s convention, and visiting with old friends, making new friends and discussing all things Colt, it is important to remember that as a board it is part of our responsibility to keep our membership and guests safe. Since there will be no convention this year, there will also be no annual membership meeting which usually takes place on Friday night after the show doors close. This meeting is where the annual elections take place. In light of the situation,​ ​the board per C.C.A. Bylaws, reappointed the terms of the incumbent Directors and Officers. Officers up for election this year have graciously agreed to serve another term (2 years), and Directors up for election have agreed to serve their term of 3 more years. The reasoning behind not just having both this years, and next year’s incumbents all run together is because it would permanently disrupt the scheduled spacing for rotating terms of our​ ​ Board positions. If you have interest in running for a position on the Board this year, or have interest in running for a position on the Board next year, please reach out to me (contact info in front of magazine) and I would be happy to discuss this with you. Thank you to all of our members for your support. I hope everyone stays happy and healthy, and I look forward to seeing everyone in Noblesville, Indiana in 2021!

Director / Chairman of Elections Committee

Will trade and exhibitor table paid registrations be refunded?

How can I cancel my hotel room reservation?

  • All hotel reservations booked through the CCA block at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, Scottsdale, Arizona will be cancelled automatically and released, and no further action is required by you. However, as a double check, you may also call the hotel directly and cancel your hotel room reservations.  If you made hotel or room accommodations outside of the CCA block, you must cancel directly with your housing provider.

How does the CCA plan to conduct the Annual Membership Meeting typically held during the convention?

  • The CCA Board of Directors has evaluated the options for holding its annual membership meeting as well as elections of Officers and Board of Directors.  Please see the President’s letter in this issue of the magazine for further information.
