2020 National Speleological Society Convention


As we are all too aware, this year’s NSS Convention in Elkins, West Virginia, had to be canceled due to circumstances beyond our control. Once the full weight of that heartbreaking decision sank in, many of us were left thinking, “OK, now what?” Calls and emails went out to all the coordinators and we were thrilled beyond belief that a good majority of them were willing to proceed with this virtual experience. So now we are pleased to present this 2020 NSS Virtual Convention.

Over the coming weeks, content links will begin appearing in the schedule close to their originally scheduled times.

Our deepest thanks and gratitude go out to all the staff and all the hard work that went into what would have been the 2020 Convention. We look forward to brighter healthier days and seeing everyone again in Elkins, West Virginia, in 2023!
