Covid-19 affected social events.

People are (socially distancing) to prevent spread of Covid-19.

There doesn’t appear to be an end in sight to solving the Covid-19 crisis.


I enjoy attending conferences.

I’ve really missed attending these events, learning and growing, presenting trainings, networking, and traveling.


Here are two that I wasn’t able to provide this year:

·         Teen Success Workshop — Rescheduling of this event is pending.

·         Rec Therapy Today Live Annual Workshop — I substituted by providing a Spring 2020 Teleconference.


Here is a list of conferences that I’ve missed in 2020 that I planned on attending and/ or presenting:

·         Local state recreational therapy association conferences.

·         West Virginia Counseling Association annual conference

·         West Virginia Book Fair – I set up booth for my children’s books.

·         Tri-state comic con – okay – I admit that I’m a comic book geek.

·         American Therapeutic Recreation Association’s LIVE annual conference.


Other social events that I missed this year:

·         Live Concerts

·         Movies at the movie theater


Society will just have to adapt and change for a while.

·         Professional conferences are being replaced with teleconferences.

·         People are using amazon to order online opposed to shopping in large outlet stores.

·         Movies are being streamed from home through Netflix, Disney, Hulu, Amazon Prime.
