Dear Friends,

At its meeting on April 4th, the AGS Board of Directors voted to postpone the 2020 Annual Conference until 2021. In the last few weeks, it has become clear that hosting a meeting during the COVID-19 pandemic is not feasible. The current travel restrictions, economic uncertainties, and potential health risks are simply too great for the 2020 conference to take place. The organizers are already in the process of ensuring that we have a truly Texas-sized gathering in 2021. Updates will be posted as they become available on the AGS Conference page: www.gravestonestudies.org/conferences. Special thanks go out to everyone who assisted on the planning of the 2020 conference as well as those who submitted award nominations, student paper submissions, and paper proposals. The respective committees will be contacting you directly with additional information. In the meantime, keep up-to-date on all things cemeteries and gravestones on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/gravestonestudies or on Twitter at @AGS_gravestones.

Sincerely,
AGS 2020/2021 Conference Committee
