2020 Misophonia Convention
The 2020 MISOPHONIA CONVENTION was a great success and benefit for all! Thank you to everyone who participated – all the wonderful speakers, facilitators and attendees from around the world!
CONVENTION DATES: Friday October 9 and Saturday October 10, 2020: Speakers, presentations and discussion groups with varied topics; there was a meet-and-greet reception on Thursday evening, October 8.
SPEAKERS AND SCHEDULE: The conference was held on Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10, from 11:30 AM- 8 PM (EDT). There were breaks and lunch breaks on both days.
The convention featured the most current and relevant research and information about Misophonia, including presentations from diverse fields of expertise and life, social opportunities and support from others with Misophonia, and interactive sessions and activities.
Our overall goal remains to create an affordable convention that will bring you the very best in current thinking, coping, management, new knowledge, and practical sessions with useful advice and support.
2020 Jaxson Award
During our 2015 convention, a young boy, Jaxon, did a surprise fund raiser for the Association, to allow more people to attend on scholarship, and presented us with a check for $2000 that he raised! We quickly created the Jaxon Award, to be given in recognition for significant contribution to the Misophonia Association or the field of misophonia,
During our first ever online convention, one of our volunteers – Troy Rysedorph – was presented this award. This was very fitting as there would not have been a 2020 convention without Troy! Because of all the hours of dedicated help Troy put in to set up everything needed, we were able to enjoy all the wonderful speakers and to engage in meaningful communication online together. Thank you so much Troy!
