Everyone Registers with the WHA *and* Pheedloop

Pheedloop Online Conference Platform Access: Beginning in mid-September, conference registrants will receive an email invitation from the WHA staff to create an online conference profile on Pheedloop, the WHA's online conference platform. (Think of your Pheedloop profile as an extended version of a physical name badge!)

YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH--WHA conference registration and Pheedloop profile creation--TO ATTEND OR PRESENT AT THE 2020 CONFERENCE. You will not be able to attend the conference or present your work if you do not have a Pheedloop profile; this means you will not be able to attend the conference or present your work if you do not FIRST register through the WHA website (see link above). ALL REGISTRATION CLOSES OCTOBER 9.

Programs and Totes!

WHA Programs and Tote Bags: WHA members just received the 2020 Conference Program in the mail. If you joined and registered (or registered as a non-member) between August 21 and September 25, you will receive your program with your tote bag in early October. In the meantime, please access the 2020 program online

Everyone who registers for the conference by the pre-registration deadline on September 25 will receive a 2020 tote bag prior to the conference. This year's bag features one of our major conference sponsors and will be a welcome addition to your growing collection of WHA totes. (Many thanks to the University of New Mexico Press for their generous sponsorship!) If you do not register for the conference prior to or on September 25, you will not receive your tote bag and program until later in October.
