New York, NY – Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, has announced registration has opened for their third annual Jewelers of America National Convention, an education-focused executive forum open to jewelry professionals, that will be held virtually on July 19 and 20, 2021. The Convention – with the theme “Coming into Focus” – is free for all Jewelers of America 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 & 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 Marilyn Sherman titled “Back to the New Future: Front-Row Strategies for Success.” In her live keynote session, nationally renowned speaker Marilyn Sherman will motivate you to take charge of your career and personal life by focusing on what is right in the world and what you can do to make a difference. Marilyn 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 Marilyn Sherman, there will be three additional keynote presentations as well as many breakout sessions to choose from.
