The Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to again postpone this year’s Union due to the uncertainty still surrounding COVID-19. We, as a committee, feel best to err on the side of caution, and are more concerned with everyone’s health and safety during this time. In place of the in person conference, we will be bringing back a second season of the Melungeon Voices podcast, as well as having a virtual Union through Zoom on Saturday, June 19th. More information and instructions for registration, etc… will be forthcoming in the next few weeks. If anyone has any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
