The second class of Elevate Cbus launched on September 8, 2020 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 venue host LA Catering.

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

At a later date, in-person sessions may potentially be held at L.A. Catering located at 670 Harmon Avenue. You can learn more about the precautions L.A. Catering is taking during COVID-19 to keep its visitors safe here
