Dear NSS Friends and Others,

We are so glad you are making time to join us in what is a first for the NSS. We hope you enjoy watching the session presentations and attending the live meetings.

We tried to replicate the schedule of the in-person convention. Each day, the videos for that day will go live at midnightoh-one. You click on the title and it should take you to the video. Simple.

Simplicity was the name of the game when we started this big adventure. We tried to make it simple for presenters to offer their expertise and for you viewers who can pick and choose which videos to watch. The simple beauty of this virtual convention is that you don’t have to choose between two (or more!) excellent presentations—you can watch them
all at your leisure!

View the schedule online.

We’d like to thank our staff—both for the in-person convention that got postponed and the virtual staff who helped make this virtual convention happen. We could not have done it without you!

And we’d like to thank YOU, who have supported and encouraged us with this big adventure.

  1. Thank you so much for putting this together. I’m missing my caving family, and having this little bit of convention helps. Is there also some social gatherings planned? A virtual Howdy Party?

  2. I would like to add my “thanks” to all who have created this virtual NSS Convention. Given the short time-frame that you had, yours was virtually a “Mission Impoosible” but it appears that you have pulled it off spectacularly well! Many thanks! Dwight Hoxie NSS 5758.

    1. Dwight,
      You’re welcome. We are glad that everyone is enjoying this. Our Virtual Convention staff is pretty amazing! I’m proud to be a part of such a cool and historic (for the NSS) accomplishment.
