38th Annual AMSAT Space Symposium and Annual General Meeting Moving to
The 38th Annual AMSAT Space Symposium and Annual General Meeting in-
person event scheduled to be held in Bloomington, Minnesota has been
canceled. The event will be shifted to a virtual, online platform.
This comes after a decision made between AMSAT's Senior Leadership and
Board of Directors in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While
AMSAT recognizes the national challenges related to recent events in
Minneapolis, they have no bearing on the Symposium decision
whatsoever. We anticipate holding 2021's Annual Space Symposium at the
previously announced 2020 venue.
The in-person event was scheduled to occur Friday, October 16th -
Sunday, October 18th. As the 2020 virtual event plans are developed,
they will be announced via the usual AMSAT channels.
[ANS thanks the AMSAT Office for the above information]
In addition to regular membership, AMSAT offers membership in the
President's Club. Members of the President's Club, as sustaining
donors to AMSAT Project Funds, will be eligible to receive addi-
tional benefits. Application forms are available from the AMSAT
73 and Remember to help Keep Amateur Radio in Space,
