If you are interested in being considered for programming please email program@boskone.org.

We usually receive more requests that we can fulfill. While we are committed to sending a program survey to anyone who asks, we cannot promise placement as a program participant. Final decisions on programming are made in early December. So, please be sure to contact us early in the planning process. Our program team begins their work in August 2021.
