This year in 2020 will be the 26th and Final PantheaCon. I once had a vision of the many tribes of Earth religions and neo-pagans coming together to network and share our varied views of spirituality. That vision came true for many years, but as time passed it grew bigger and the viewpoints diverged. I still hope PantheaCon has been of benefit to many individuals who met like-minded friends at it.
I will be retiring at the end of PantheaCon 2020. In doing so, I hope to create a space for new leaders and new faces to bring fresh visions.
I wish to acknowledge and thank all the many staff who over the years have given so selflessly to PantheaCon, this coming together of the tribes. Of primary recognition is Sabre (head of Conference Assistance Team and Operations) who has been with the Con from the start.
Jamie and Thalassa each also deserve special recognition, as they have worked hard for many years to bring more diversity to the Con, and for bringing their special talents and viewpoints. I thank the many department heads and staff who have invested their time and energy to make the Con grow and run for so many years.
We are lower on staff this year compared to other years. Please consider helping make the Last PantheaCon a success by joining us on staff or as a volunteer. The hours you choose to work will reimburse your membership fee back and it can be an opportunity to learn more of the many tasks it takes to make a conference work. Perhaps you have an interest in an area, or maybe you’d like to try something new. Contact us and we would be happy to share more details with you. email@example.com
For this last year in 2020, we are already putting together a full schedule of events and
hospitality groups for the four days of the Con. Join us in San Jose one last time and together we can make this a magical year. See the website soon for a preview of some of the speakers and attending groups.
May the Gods protect our Pagan Ways,
Glenn Turner, founder and organizer of PantheaCon
