There’s Still Time To Register For the Charleston Conference

by | Oct 27, 2020 | 0 comments

The 2020 Charleston Conference starts on November 2, which is just next week! But there is still time to register if you have not already done so. Just click here to see the registration form.

One thing you will immediately notice is a complete revision of the conference website into the “Charleston Hub” where you can find lots of information about not only the conference but helpful links to other content, such as the website of Against The Grain, the journal of The Charleston Group (the conference organizer); news relevant to our industry; and even a listing of available jobs. The main page for this year’s conferences is on the Hub here.

As you undoubtedly know, the conference is virtual this year because of the COVID pandemic. This is the 40th anniversary of the founding of the conference by Katina Strauch, and it has come a very long way.

Katina Strauch (L), Leah Hinds (R)

Here are some useful things that will enhance your conference experience.

  • Two very helpful user guides compiled by Leah Hinds, the Executive Director of the Conference, here and here.
  • The conference program is available here. You can set up your own agenda so you don’t have to look through the entire program every time you want to know what to do next.
  • Monday, November is an “Exploration Day” on which a live demonstration of the platform hosting the conference (called Pathable) will be recorded and available throughout the entire event.
  • The Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers are recommended; if these are not available, you may have to dial in and use Zoom to access the conference.
  • Even though the conference is virtual, there will be an an “exhibit hall” on Tuesday, November 3, where you can interact with the vendors between 10 AM and 6 PM. (Click on “Tuesday November 3” and scroll down to see them.)

I hope you enjoy the conference!

I will be blogging the conference as in past years, so stay tuned to see the news.
