The 96th Annual WSPECW Conference

Our in-person conference has been cancelled for this Fall. We were fortunate to make this decision early when we had only placed a small deposit on the venue. Even better, conference manager, Alison Ede, has worked successfully with Asilomar to rollover our security deposit from this year into next year’s conference. This means that for now, we are planning to have our in-person conference in Fall 2021 at Asilomar Conference Grounds. Our planned keynote speaker, SFSU President Lynn Mahoney, has agreed to be our keynote again next year and I couldn’t be more grateful to her. She will have plenty to speak about, having finished her first full year in her role. 

Like many of you, we are disappointed we will not have an in-person conference this Fall. However, we are still making space for us to come together. On Friday, November 20th, we will have a two-hour event from 3-5pm PST over Zoom to celebrate our award winners and socialize with each other. The exact details of this event are currently being planned so we’ll share more information soon. A big thanks to the planning committee helping to make this happen!
