Countdown to the PCA Virtual Conference
Save the Date: Speaker and Attendee Training
Although we think you will find the Pathable Platform easy to navigate, we will offer two live trainings to help you get oriented to presenting at and attending the virtual conference.


Tuesday, May 25, 2021 at 1:00pm EDT
Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 4:00pm EDT

Prior to these dates, you will receive an email with a link to access the platform. Please expect your Pathable invite email by Monday, May 24. Once logged in, you will be able to attend the training sessions. The sessions will be recorded and posted for those who cannot attend the live training.
There's still time to register!
We welcome non-presenters to attend the virtual conference. Registration requires active membership and a $95 registration fee. Registration remains through May 31.
Posting before and during the conference!
We encourage your social media posts before and during the conference! Be sure to use the #pcaaca21 hashtag so we can see your tweets and be featured on our social wall.
Last call for Mentors!
The mentor program is still looking for applicants! Mentors especially needed. Apply here

Deadline to apply is May 23
Celebrating Boston: Melnea Cass
You may have noticed our virtual conference rooms have Boston-related names. Even though we can't be in Boston this year, we are still celebrating the city as a past and future conference site!

Melnea Cass, "The First Lady of Roxbury," is a community organizer and a leader for advocacy groups in the South End and Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston. She was active in the fight to desegregate Boston public schools, as a board member and as president of the Boston chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
