Saturday, March 9th will include a morning keynote address by Dr. Linda Leblanc, followed by a day of break-out sessions.

Journal Subscription Cancellation

Unfortunately, we are experiencing constant, consistent difficulties with accessing Wiley and Springer journals, which has been the situation for many months. Our numerous attempts to have our concerns successfully addressed and resolved has failed. Given these continual challenges and the high subscription cost, the board has decided to cancel both journal subscriptions.

We apologize for any inconvenience and regret having to take this action, but decided that the inconsistent (and oftentimes complete lack of) access did not justify the continued cost.
