As the coronavirus extends its impact on us, I pray you and those you love remain safe and healthy. The continuing situation is requiring another change for the 2020 SCJ Conference. Thankfully, it’s not a date change. The conference will be virtual, on Zoom facilitated by Johnson University.
Everything we normally do at our conference can be accomplished virtually--even the social interaction everyone enjoys—well, minus the fantastic brownies and chocolate chip cookies, but we have an idea about that too.
Conference attendees will be provided seasoned thoughts on Politics and the Stone-Campbell Movement from Shaun Casey, Jess Hale, and Rick Cherok. Plus, there will be study groups, parallel sessions, and Student Paper Contests finalists. The costs will be exactly the same. The best rate will be good until August 16th, the first increase will be good until September 4th, and a second until the day of the conference. See website for list of exact costs.
Registrants will receive a schedule with links to access the individual features of the program on the days of the conference, September 11-12. You can’t do this yet, but we’ll let you know when the website is ready. For more information, contact Betsy Chastain: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those who have already registered will only need to confirm their registration on the SCJ website by August 21.
There is a possibility that the conference will expand into Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon to be able to benefit more people to take advantage of sessions. We’ll let everyone know if that will happen.
Plan to attend the 2020 SCJ Conference September 11-12, virtually. Let colleagues know they now can get the full benefits of a quality conference without leaving home.
Watch our website for registration news or wait for the next email. Watch for a reminder postcard coming to your address soon.
