Conference Season 2014 and Other Exciting News

Conference Season 2014 and Other Exciting News post image

Spring is “conference season” for many people in my discipline. Many of the conferences I regularly attend and present research at are front-loaded in the year, which means I am busy with a lot of travel and preparation until Summer. I have updated my conference activity in various spots on this website, whether it’s continuing education talks, research abstracts that resulted in poster presentations or podium presentations, or committee memberships. I thought since there is such a flurry of activity in a relatively short amount of time, I would post an update in one place, at a minimum to justify my productivity to those around me, but also to provide justification to my wife as to why I am floating all over the US for a few months. You can also see my full list of research, speaking, and committee activity. So, here we go, in order of conference date:
