Opportunity to Engage

Looking for members ... planning to attend the annual conference who are willing to share their room with a foreign attendee either sharing lodging costs or, (if your institution funds the lodging), at no cost to the foreign attendee. Foreign attendees often make huge sacrifices to acquire funds for airfare and registration. This is a great opportunity to get to know some of our overseas colleagues! If you are interested, please email the IC chair or Co-chair.
