Virtual JWHA Annual Conference

Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23, 2021

With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to prohibit large indoor gatherings, the JWHA Board has decided to conduct a 2021 virtual conference.

We appreciate the members who responded to the survey, giving the Board a basis for discussion. The Board was concerned that many members would be uncomfortable traveling at this time.

Members voted that if a digital event were to be held, they would prefer a two-day conference.

We look forward to the efforts of the Program Committee as they arrange for the scholarly presentations. The platform will allow for our annual Business Meeting.
