2021 Convention

POSTPONED TO February 4-6, 2022

Hilton Hotel & Conference Center

Marietta, GA

The Georgia Basketry Association Board and Convention Co-Chairs have taken much time to consider the best way to be mindful of the safety of our membership and also ensure the financial stability of our organization going forward.  Conversations and deliberation led to the following conclusion:

 

The 2021 GBA Convention has been postponed until 2022.  With so much uncertainty around regulations, travel, what the upcoming flu season will bring – carefully considering all aspects – the decision to postpone was believed best for all.  Be assured, this was a difficult, complex decision.

 

Although we are disappointed to postpone this event, we feel it’s best at this time.  We assure you that we are already actively looking into plans for 2022!  We ask that you “Save the Date” of February 4 – 6, 2022 when we will celebrate a “Kaleidoscope of Baskets”!
