A Symposium Update and Proactive Message

Dear AHG Members and Community,

As we all adjust to the changes set in motion by the situation with COVID-19, the American Herbalists Guild remains committed to providing support to the herbal community. Our combined wisdom as herbalists and healers is needed more than ever as we take action together to support our families and communities.
 
In the past few days, we've made some significant changes in our plans for the year we want you to know about. We are excited to announce that the AHG 31st Annual Symposium will now be presented as an Online Experience for October 15-19, 2020. Though things are still in the early planning stage, we're excited about the many creative ways we can connect with the herb community using this format. We will miss seeing everyone in person but we look forward to reuniting in Granby in 2021 for the 32nd Annual AHG Symposium. More details soon. And don't forget, if you'd like to be a presenter for the online symposium, we're accepting proposals until April 1st.

AHG is committed to transforming the challenges we're facing into new ways of building connections with each other, serving our members as you've come to expect, and finding new ways to advance the practice of herbalism.
