We will reopen for Fall Term on August 26.
The season of conferences and summer activities is upon us and it’s been hard to keep up. The Newsletter lists many of these as well as articles of interest and recently released resources.
Check the online Calendar on our Virtual Community website for the latest information on upcoming conferences, including calls for proposals, scholarship information, vendor and exhibit information, and early bird registration deadlines.
If you have something happening to share with others, we update our online Calendar regularly and publish this Newsletter monthly (except in June/July when we combine it to one newsletter). It's a great way to let people know! Just send email firstname.lastname@example.org.
