On March 4, 2020, PEAK’s Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the PEAK2020 conference slated for March 9-11 in Seattle due to the COVID-19 outbreak – a decision based wholly on ensuring the health and safety of attendees, presenters, sponsors, exhibitors, hotel workers, and the communities to which each would have been returning.

In May 2020, we hosted our first-ever virtual conference, bringing together more than a thousand grants management professionals and our partners for a series of learning and networking events around the theme, Courage in Practice. Program
