Hello to our MVCAC members!
As many have known, we have been working to figure out what our 2021 conference looks like in a season of a Pandemic. January 2021 was so far off when we all started following the COVID protocols that at the very least we always knew we probably would have to offer some piece of the conference virtually...... with the hopes we could still do some of it in person. Now it is October and with no information on when larger scale meetings and events will be allowed to start taking place in California, it was time to make a more concrete decision. We are announcing that our 2021 Conference will now be a fully VIRTUAL conference! Our Monterey partners agreed that an in person conference is probably not available in January and we will be re-booking with them in 2024, when we would return on a normal rotation.
We have a lot of work to do in October to get our platform going, along with figuring out how this will look so please be patient. A lot more information will be coming out in the coming weeks..... in the meantime, please do keep submitting your papers especially if you will be able to present from a virtual location.
Thank you all for your patience while we navigated these very uncharted waters. We are excited to have some new and fresh ideas incorporated into our virtual conference. STAY TUNED!
