Update: International Gay Coaches Conference 2020

Dear Conference Attendees

It is with sadness we announce that due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the International Gay Coaches Conference will not take place in 2020.

This follows meetings between the Organizing Committee and the Executive Board of Gay Coaches Alliance.

We have explored options for moving the conference in the Fall, however this will not be possible due to lack of availability during this period at Easton Mountain.

Our plan is to carry forward the hard work that has already been put into the 2020 conference into the 2021 event, including the program of workshops and other activities that have already been announced.

However, we are pleased to let you know that we will be offering 2020 Gay Coaches Virtual Conference on Thursday 30th April and Friday 1st May.
Our motivation for arranging the online conference is to provide a focus point for our community to still come together, albeit virtually, at a time of challenge that most of us are feeling.

The online conference will be delivered using Zoom and will feature versions of sessions originally scheduled for the 2020 conference at Easton Mountain, including the pre-conference by Brian Gorman and Jeff Nally.

All sessions are available free of charge to anyone who had booked to attend the 2020 event at Easton Mountain, members of Gay Coaches Alliance and their guests. You can register for as many sessions as you would like to attend HERE.

We would like to use the online conference as an opportunity to fundraise for Easton Mountain, which is facing serious financial challenges due to the postponement and cancellation of many events over the next few months. It is a non-profit and does valuable work as a community, retreat center, and sanctuary created by gay men as a gift to the world.

We look forward to returning to Easton Mountain from April 29th - May 2nd for the 2021 International Gay Coaches Conference. If you would like to register to receive updates by email about this event, please click HERE.

We hope you are all keeping safe and look forward to welcoming you to the conference soon.
