Registration Open for Non-presenters
Non-Presenter Registration is now open for the Virtual Conference. If you have never presented or attended a PCA conference, our virtual conference is a great place to start!

All attendees must have a paid, current PCA membership and pay a $95 conference registration fee.
We're looking for Morning Activities for the 2021 Virtual Conference!
Reimagining the conference as a virtual event has the added bonus of having more involvement from members! We are seeking members who would like to suggest and (1) lead morning events during the 9:30am to 10:45am EDT session, (2) evening events, starting at 8:30pm EDT, or (3) casual get-togethers in our virtual lounges in the morning, evening, or in limited cases, during the day. We know not everyone will be awake at this hour, but we want to make use of the virtual time we have together. These are casual, low-risk activities that will be added to the official schedule once approved. They do not need to be formal presentations but still must adhere to the Conference Code of Conduct. Events geared towards a particular group will still be open to all.

Some ideas are:
-Morning yoga
-Guided meditation
-Virtual breakfast
-Conversation around a topic: particular texts, current events, games, films, etc. (unlike roundtables, these are more casual)
-Career preparation and networking
-Regional based networking
-Career-related networking
-Group viewing of a short film/episode
-Group games

If you have an idea of something you'd like to lead, please email Robin Hershkowitz at by May 15 with a short description and your preferred day of the conference. All scheduled sessions are at the discretion of PCA.
Conference Prep # 8: Ribbons
A big part of our conference has been presenter ribbons! Don't fret, this year, virtual ribbons are part of the conference, and will be displayed on everyone's profile. You'll also be able to update your profile with a picture, pronouns, and other tags; tags are helpful in finding conference attendees with similar interests.
Virtual Boston
Even though we are holding a virtual conference this year, we want to celebrate the great city of Boston, our originally scheduled location. (Don't worry, we'll be back again in a few years!) Up to and during the conference, we'll be giving our event a Boston flair.

Keep these Boston features in mind, because they will come in handy for some friendly competition during the conference.

Today, we're highlighting one of the most memorable structures in Boston, The Green Monster, one of our Executive Director's favorite places.
The Green Monster is the popular nickname for the 37-foot-2-inch-high left-field wall at Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox baseball team. The Green Monster is famous for preventing home runs on many line drives that would clear the walls of other ballparks.
