Here you will find the preliminary program for our 63rd annual conference. This is the preliminary draft. While we would love to say it is error free, we expect we have missed some. When you find them, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will fix them. Also, we are still looking for people to chair and/or comment on panels. Any chair or commentator spot on a panel listed as TBD is currently in need of someone to fill it. If you have an interest in filling one of those spaces let us know. Finally, please remember to register for the conference. If you are planning on registering in person please bring cash or check.
Should you have any questions please let us know via the email@example.com email address.
Hasta Santa Fe!
