From conference coordinator Kathy



Here at SiWC Central, we're already gearing up for SiWC 2021. Here's the latest news:


SiWC will be virtual again this year, and will run October 22-24 with master classes on the 21st. Like SiWC 2020, we'll have virtual social spaces, night owl events, and more in addition to master classes, workshops, panels, and keynotes, all online.


We did not make this decision lightly. We simply could not see a path to non-essential travel and gathering by the hundreds in hotel banquet rooms being safe by October.


Part of our rationale was the proposed vaccination schedule for BC, which, if all goes as planned, has our younger adults not being vaccinated until September/October.


It's our goal to be back to the hotel in 2022, Covid willing. 


I hope you'll join us for this year's SiWC at Home. We were all thrilled with how well SiWC at Home 2020 went, and are working to make 2021 memorable, too.


In the coming weeks we'll post this year's registration rates, and our presenters and program will be on our website - - closer to registration opening. Registration will open, as usual, the first Wednesday in June at noon Pacific. 


More soon.




Kathy Chung, SiWC Conference Coordinator
