Arisia 2022 Community Online Gathering (ACOG)

​​​​Arisia 2022 is cancelled

At the end of 2021, the Con Chair team met and determined how we would move forward.  We decided that we would look at the COVID numbers in the new year (they are higher than ever), we would look at the health of our team (several of whom now have COVID or have family members with COVID), we would look at the number of folks planning to attend and/or be on program (which is currently too small to sustain us financially), and we would look at the advice of our COVID advisory team.  Together, these things portray only one responsible decision that we can make:  We need to cancel the in-person Arisia 2022.  Fortunately, the hotel has agreed to reschedule the 2022 and 2023 contracts and, instead, host Arisia 2023 and 2024 in the Westin.

For more information, please see the Final Progress Report.
