The Daguerreian Society 32nd Annual Symposium & Show
It is with my deepest regret that I need to inform you that we have had to cancel our Annual Symposium scheduled for October 3-6, 2020. The Daguerreian Society Board of Directors and Officers are in agreement that the current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic will have a considerable impact on the ability of our membership to safely travel and assemble by October. In fact, several organizations have already cancelled events scheduled well into October. The Daguerreian Society Board of Directors appreciates that this decision impacts everyone who intended to make our Annual Symposium part of their 2020 plans and thanks you for your understanding.
All is not lost as we are planning many exciting things for the near term and a virtual symposium around the same dates. Starting June 6th, we will be hosting a virtual lecture series which we hope to happen every Saturday afternoon for the foreseeable future. There will be more information about this in the coming weeks.
I would like to recognize the Daguerreian Society Symposium Committee for the tremendous amount of effort they put forth to bring this show to fruition. When chairing a symposium, there is a great deal of negotiation, scheduling, planning and re-planning when obstacles arise. Thank you to the Symposium committee team for their willingness to persevere in this difficult time.
As we navigate our way through these trying times, I hope that you and your family remain safe and healthy.
Mike Medhurst, President
The Daguerreian Society
