Virtual Convention Information
Why a VIRTUAL Convention?
The Missouri Jewelers Board of Directors unanimously decided to cancel the traditional attended convention for 2020. There were many factors in making this decision. COVID-19 is called a "Novel" corona-virus for a reason, it is new and there are just too many unknowns out there yet.
The primary factor was the safety consideration of Our members and vendors that may attend the event, as well as those they will come in contact in the immediate future. We could not justify creating a situation that those attending the event could bring the virus "home" to their businesses.
We all felt the next best thing to keep us all safely "together", and still "attend" a convention was to create a VIRTUAL Convention. All of our current Vendors and Sponsors will have the opportunity to share information and show their beautiful items. We will also be having our Design Contest Online! More details to be announced.
Our Virtual Convention will be on the website from Sept. 15th to Oct. 15th so you will be able to browse at your convenience for a whole month! Be sure to like and follow the Missouri Jewelers Association Facebook page and ALL ACTIVE MEMBERS, please request to be a member of the MJA Members Facebook group. Keep checking back for updates on presenters and live presentation times.
