Planning Committee meeting on 4/6 or 4/8, TBD

I'm sorry I can't attend today.

Huge thanks to the planning committee members.
The call went out on Jan 4, with a deadline for proposals on Feb 22. Conference is June 8-10.

Hotels are reserved. The residence halls, which we booked pre-COVID, were offline for 2 summers due to COVID, and they were hedging on whether they'd be open this year, but it now seems to be resolved--whew!

I am scheduling a meeting for the full committee on Jan 28 or Feb 2.

The Conference Planning Committee--a wonderfully large group of volunteers--met in October and set up subcommittees which are meeting in the next week or 2.

We are considering a theme related to aviation, and were thinking that we might post 3 choices to the SUNYLA listserv for a vote. Please send an suggestions to by Monday, Nov 15, and I'll send the survey out to the list. To see current suggestions, or to contribute suggestions that might get picked for the final 3, please add a comment to this google doc:

Please also contribute any keynote speaker suggestions.

The call for sessions will go out in December, 2021.
Registration will begin in April, 2022.
Conference is June 8-10, Farmingdale State College
