COVID-19 EVENT UPDATE

CRPA leadership has made the difficult decision to again POSTPONE our CPSI Course scheduled for June 16 - June 18, 2020 in East Hartford, CT.  We feel that the current course dates fall too close to the potential CT reopening date of May 20th and does not provide enough time to ensure the safety of our course participants and instructors in terms of travel and attendance
