66th Annual Clemson Brick Forum will be a virtual event

Out of concern for the health and safety of our members, sponsors of the Forum and our staff, we will not be holding the Clemson Brick Forum in the traditional capacity this year. We have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19, and after much consideration, we will not have the in-person conference for the first time in 66 years. We are currently working on an alternative virtual format to keep the educational mission of the Clemson Brick Forum alive.

More information about this hopefully one-time virtual format will be released as we finalize plans. We appreciate your patience as we develop these plans and wish you good health and hope that we can get back to normal in 2021.

Please send your questions or comments to Anne Jenkins.
