Registration Opens for Jewelers of America’s Virtual National Convention May 17, 2021 (0 comments)


New York, NY – Jewelers of America (JA), has opened registration for its third annual Jewelers of America National Convention, an education-focused executive forum open to jewelry professionals. The event will be held virtually on July 19 and 20. The Convention—with the theme “Coming into Focus” —is free for all JA members to attend and will feature many sessions designed to offer education for everyone in the jewelry, gem and watch industry. “COVID-19 is keeping us from coming together under one roof; however, that won’t stop us from uniting the entire industry for two great days of interaction, education and networking,” says David J. Bonaparte, JA president and CEO. “With the crisis mode in the rearview mirror, we are helping the industry focus on the parts of their business that will help them succeed long-term. Success is ‘coming into focus’ and education empowers us to see things more clearly."

The Jewelers of America Virtual National Convention will kick off with a keynote presentation by nationally renowned speaker Marilyn Sherman. Her keynote, titled “Back to the New Future: Front-Row Strategies for Success,” will motivate attendees to take charge of their career and personal life by focusing on what is right in the world and what they can do to make a difference. Sherman will share stories to ignite passion for what you do, offer strategies to take success to the next level and teach attendees how to focus on energy management, not time management. 

In addition to Sherman, there will be three additional keynote presentations as well as many breakout sessions to choose from. 

“With three great sessions to choose from during each breakout session, we encourage employers to get multiple staff members registered so the entire company can get involved, empowered and be part of the company’s success,” added Bonaparte. “We are very thankful for the support from our partners at Synchrony, De Beers Group, Gemological institute of America, Jewelers Mutual Group and National Jeweler.”

JA is celebrating its 115th anniversary this year. To honor the milestone, JA will be providing “Experience Boxes” to the first 115 guests to register for the convention (limit of two per company). The boxes contain treats, tea, and other goodies that will make the Virtual National Convention experience even more rewarding. 

Jewelers of America’s Virtual National Convention is open to employees of JA Member companies. If your business is not a member of Jewelers of America, we are offering a free JA Membership through December 31, 2021 for qualified companies when you register for the National Convention.
