2017 Conference Update
We are happy to have the schedule set for our 2017 Conference featuring D. Joshua Taylor. We hope you all are excited to attend, as we are. Brochures should be ready soon, in November 2016. Online registration will open in January 2017. Mail-in registrations can begin as soon as brochures are available. There is a lot to do in Lincoln, so there will be opportunities on Thursday to visit libraries, museums or whatever you choose.
