If you have any questions, please contact the Treasurer.

The Virtual Winter 2021 Meeting was a Success!

Thank you to everyone who planned for and participated in the Winter 2021 virtual meeting on January 11th. We had 96 registrants and over 70 people participating during the sessions. It was nice to see familiar faces, meet new people in breakout sessions, and learn together. The Program with the abstracts can now be found in the Meeting Archives. Check the website and your listserv email for news about the Summer 2021 meeting. If you have ideas for it, please contact me or the Program Committee Chair, Sara Turner.

Thank you,
