The 2020 NASFiC Committee announced that the 2020 NASFiC, previously announced as cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held as an online-only event from August 21-23, according to a statement posted on the convention web site on July 22, 2020:
Along with ongoing negotiations with our Hotel, we’ve been exploring the possibility of providing an Online event for all of you. We are happy to announce that this is now a reality. We have a small team working hard to put together the best online event we can for you to enjoy at the end of August. Due to our transition we’ve revised our dates to reflect the limit of our planning capabilities at this point; they are now Friday, August 21st-Sunday, August 23rd.
As you may know, the skills required to run a virtual event are different from those required to run an in person event. We held off on announcing this digital transformation until we were able to confirm with enough of our staff and guests that they were able and willing to help with a virtual convention that we knew that we’d actually be able to provide you with content.
In recognition of the difficulty of these times we are offering this event for Free with optional donation. We will be reaching out to all our paid members to make sure they have the opportunity to enjoy the content we’re putting together, and are also going to be opening it up to other’s who would like to join.
If you would like to volunteer with us in this challenging transition please fill out our volunteer survey. If you would like to join us as a program participant please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
