We have held internal discussion with our Board and staff in addition to having discussions with fellow associations, learned societies, and other professional affiliations. After thorough consideration, we are announcing our decision to postpone the conference for an entire calendar year, meaning that we will be holding the conference in Cleveland in 2021. While we would love nothing more than to gather with all of you in November, we want your health and ours to be the primary consideration, which is why we are making this decision, one that it is made out of extreme caution and concern for all of us.
For those who have submitted a proposal already, all submitted proposals will be kept on file and treated as submitted for the rescheduled conference; you will not need to resubmit your proposal.
Lastly, we hope that all of you are safe and well during this unprecedented time. While it is unfortunate that we are not able to convene in 2020, we hope that it will make the 2021 conference that much more hopeful and rewarding as we discuss Truth, Justice, and the Humanities Way.
