A YEAR OF CHANGE
A Message from the President
When I assumed my SWG presidential duties in January, I couldn’t have imagined the life-changing
events we would have to endure this year, and those yet to unfold. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected our organization, not to mention our city, state, country, and the World. When all is said and done, 2020 will be a year not soon forgotten.
Challenging times like these call for patience, innovation, adaptability, and perseverance. Your SWG leadership has been, and will continue to be, proactive in making the best choices possible to insure a bright future for our organization.
In the days and months ahead, you will be receiving updates about a number of potential changes that could positively impact the SWG. I am looking forward, with great anticipation, to sharing this information with you as we continue to progress through these most unusual and unsettling times.
As always, we will keep you informed through our SWG email updates, monthly newsletter, website, and Facebook pages.
Write on, SWG. Write on!
Chris Keller, SWG President
SAME TIME NEXT YEAR: June 18-20, 2021
SAME PLACE: DoubleTree by Hilton
SAME SPEAKER: Steven James
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Between the Pages board has come to the difficult decision to postpone the conference to 2021 out of a concern for public health and safety. We feel it would be irresponsible to host an event with a large number of people in an enclosed space for hours on end. Likewise, we believe that many attendees would be uneasy about attending for this reason.
With the bad news, we have some good. Nearly all of our speakers, including keynote Steve James, have agreed to the new dates. The conference we promised will be delivered, just a year later that we anticipated.
If you registered and chose to reserve your spot for next year:
Your registration fees and any associated extras will be applied to the 2021 conference, so your seat is saved, and we’ll see you next year.
Don’t forget to renew your membership for 2020!
