About Misophonia Association

Important Update

The Misophonia convention will proceed as planned for October 8th through 10th, but safely.  Due to COVID-19, like everyone, we will be going virtual, and keeping you socially distanced but together. Your convention team is investigating the best virtual way to give YOU the BEST virtual experience. Stay tuned to this site for updated details.  As soon as everything is in place, registration will commence. There will be our usual great speakers, varied and pertinent topics, presentations, and interaction opportunities. Hope you are getting as excited as we are.  This may be a wonderful opportunity in disguise to not turn anyone away due to occupancy restrictions and financial issues. Please save the dates for our upcoming online convention!

We look forward to “seeing” you in October!
