Keynote Speaker at the 2020 BPUSA “25 Years of Hope” Gathering Conference to be held August 7-9, 2020 at the Le Méridien Hotel in St. Louis, MO.
BPUSA has been a beacon of hope for grieving families since its beginning in January 1995. The 2020 Gathering theme is “25 Years of Hope.”
The Gathering Conference will be a three-day event with keynote speakers, workshops, meals, entertainment and memorial ceremonies all designed to help bereaved parents and their families understand that they are not alone in their grief. Our annual Gatherings have been praised as wonderfully meaningful experiences, life-changing in many ways. Participants come away feeling refreshed and revitalized, better informed about the grieving process, more aware of hope and promise and affirmed by meeting new friends who travel the same path.
The tentative speaker schedule is as follows.
Friday Breakfast: Opening Ceremony (no speaker)
Friday Lunch: Bobby Morton
Friday Dinner: The Kovaleski Family
Saturday Breakfast: Anne Moss Rogers
Saturday Lunch: Susan Toler Carr
Saturday Dinner: Candle Lighting (no speaker)
