Nominations for the third class of Elevate are now closed.

The third class of Elevate Cbus launched on April 6, 2021, in a virtual format due to COVID-19 and in adherence with CDC guidelines.  The program will be re-evaluated at a later date to consider implementing hybrid, socially distanced sessions at a LA Catering.  If possible, these will start as early as June.

Elevate Cbus will also facilitate a number of socially distanced networking meetups in small groups for networking throughout all six sessions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
