News from National

Still catching up after five days at National in Anaheim! (My students didn’t mind me missing the first day of classes….but I’ve been running to catch up since my return.)

First: Congrats to National Staff and Board for great programs, great venue, great organization and an all-round valuable conference. With three sponsoring orgs, attendance was at about 1450.

Next: Get out your calendars!

  • Region 4 Spring Conference will be in Columbus, April 4-5. More details coming soon!
  • The 2014 National Convention will be in Nashville, Sept. 4-6. After that: Orlando, then New Orleans.
  • Region 4 picked up a $500 contribution from Regions 3 and 12 for helping judge their annual Green Eyeshade contest. Thanks!
  • Speaking of money, the RD4 account will now be close to $4000. Ideas welcome on how to spend some of that. Among the possibilities: helping defray costs of the Regional in Columbus; underwriting (some) student registrations for the Regional; creating a scholarship; etc.

More news soon on all fronts.
