Annual Membership Meeting Moved to Fall

For years, the annual meeting was held in the spring…a good time to celebrate the academic year being completed, but often a time with lots of competition from other events (and often fine weather). This year we’ve decided to try a fall date – October 21 – in hopes of a better fit for our members. You’ll be hearing more about details as the time draws nearer, but save the date on your calendar now!
