Vermont College Media Conference has been cancelled due to COVID-19

Thanks so much for hanging in there this past week as we’ve awaited the fate of the Vermont College Media Conference, which I believe will go down in history as the greatest college media conference that never was. This morning, UVM canceled all events of more than 10 people through the end of April. This is not surprising, but it’s still disappointing.

Normally, we would pledge to present the conference at a later time. However this will be the co-producer Chris Evans’ last academic year at UVM. Starting in August, he will begin work as a clinical assistant professor of journalism at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

With Chris goes our connection to free space, so the chances of this event happening in it’s current form do not look good.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email vab@vab.org or call Wendy Mays at 802-233-0296.
