This year, we are excited to be organizing a “regional networking lunch” from 12:15 to 1:45 on Friday, the 23rd.
One purpose of the lunch is for participants to learn about how people from various regions of the US (and international participants, if interest is evidenced] can organize their own regional study groups. It will also be a great opportunity for people to meet scholars with similar interests who live in their area and brainstorm a number of ways to create meaningful, more local communities in an age of environmental concern and budgetary constraints.
The lunch is supplemented by the conference and will be $15 for regular members and $10 for graduate students, retired faculty members, and independent scholars. Look for a place to sign up for it on the registration form.
