AAW'S 34th Annual International Symposium

COVID-19 and the 2020 AAW Symposium

Due to the seriousness of COVID-19, and adhering to international, federal, and state advisories and legal impossibility mandates, the AAW Board of Directors unanimously approved the cancellation of the 2020 AAW Symposium on March 30, 2020.

Complete details about the cancellation, including process for full registration refunds and future plans, will be provided very soon. As we continue to address the impacts of this challenging situation, we thank you for your patience, understanding, flexibility, and support. We know this is disappointing for all of us, and we thank you for the notes of support we’ve received during this process.

Best wishes for health, safety, and care to each of you and to those you care about.

Students will make a variety of projects or may attend educational woodturning rotations. 

 

Registration and Enrollment

For youth to have their classes preassigned prior to the symposium, they must be registered by May 17, 2020. As part of the preregistration process, youth will be expected to specify the classes in which they wish to enroll. The Youth Program coordinator will confirm enrollment for up to three classes in advance of the symposium.

All sponsors must be paid registrants attending the symposium. Sponsors fall into three categories: (1) parent, adult relative, or legal guardian; (2) coach/instructor (does not include teachers with complimentary registration); (3) adult family friend. A registered participant may sponsor up to three youth. Sponsors must volunteer in the youth room, or provide an alternate, for one rotation for each youth sponsored.
