    AMSAT 2021 Symposium and Annual Meeting Changes to Virtual Event

    Due to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, AMSAT has announced
    that its 39th Space Symposium scheduled for October 29-31, 2021 will now
    take place as a virtual event. The Symposium was originally planned to be
    held at the Crowne Plaza AiRE hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota.

    AMSAT President, Robert Bankston, KE4AL, explained, "Our membership has
    voiced its concern over the continued presence of the COVID-19 pandemic and
    the risks associated with long distance travel and attendance at large
    group gatherings. In the interest of everyone's comfort and safety, we
    have made the difficult decision to return to a virtual meeting platform.
    If there is any good news in this, we know that last year's virtual
    Symposium event was well received and that we have the opportunity to
    repeat its success this year."

    The dates for the virtual symposium will remain the same as was originally announced. The schedule will be reviewed by Symposium organizers and
    adjusted as needed to accommodate the virtual setting. Persons who have
    already registered for the Symposium will automatically receive refunds in
    the days ahead.

    Please watch for further announcements as they become available. Questions regarding the Symposium should be addressed to info at amsat dot com.

    [ANS thanks AMSAT for the above information.]
