Early June MAPACA Newsletter - Our 2022 Conference Will Be Online!

This is the early June MAPACA newsletter. Our next conference is November 10-12 and will be held online.

Our 2022 Conference Will Be Online!

Due to the continuing pandemic, including the forecast of a major spike in the number of Covid cases in the Fall, the MAPACA Board has voted to hold our 2022 conference completely online. The pandemic continues to be a risk for many. We know that many schools have eliminated conference travel budgets again this year. At the same time, we still want to meet with everyone to share our knowledge and love for popular and American culture. While we will miss being able to meet in person, we continue to believe an online conference is the best option for all of us this year — and we know we will have a great conference!

Like last year, we will use the Zoom platform for our conference. Keep an eye on the newsletter for Zoom tips and information about updated conference information.
