2021 Symposium

Our own safety precautions and that of our venues required that we limited in-person attendance in 2021 to a small, intimate group here in Dallas. For the rest of our world-wide mineral lovers, we broadcasted and live-streamed the talks as well as hosted our special benefit auctions online, as we did in 2020. This allowed for much broader participation by the community and was tremendous fun for all! Proceeds from in-person and online tickets sales were donated to mineral organizations.
