In both an abundance of caution and as an evasive business viability decision, we have made the decision to move our upcoming conference by three months, from the original February dates to May 18-22, 2022. 

This has been a difficult decision to make, but after working with event safety consultants at Majestic Collaborations, the Kansas City Health Department, the Office of Emergency Management, and the Westin Crown Center Hotel team, we felt this was the best way to proceed.

We have a brief video from our executive director, Aengus Finnan, explaining a bit more in-depth why we’ve decided to move the conference:

All current conference registrations will be automatically moved forward to the new dates! If anyone can no longer attend we will happily provide a refund and all registrants have received a separate email about that simple process. If you have any questions or concerns, we’ve created a survey to collect community feedback here.

You can also contact our staff directly at or 1-816-221-3655. Please note that our office will be closed from December 24 to January 2.

Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you in May 2022 when the weather in Kansas City is much warmer!
