Good evening everyone!

I have to admit I am saddened to read Elmer's email. I attended my first CALI conference over 20 years ago (1995 was my first!) and I have only missed a few.

I know budgets are tight and the competition is fierce on where/how to spend your limited travel dollars. However, I hope that you realize that not only is the CALI conference an opportunity to learn and to share about, as Elmer notes "bringing technology to legal education", it is also an opportunity to meet and build relationships that will last a lifetime.

While I have presented many times at CALI, I'm sure some, myself included, enjoy listening and learning from what others are doing. Please consider submitting a session proposal so that I can do so in June 😊

Hope to see old friends and new faces then!

Signing off from my soapbox

Happy Monday Teknoids!

In the nearly 30 year history of CALIcon members of this list have been the core pool of presenters for the conference. I've always been proud of the fact that CALIcon gives a voice to many front line librarians and IT staff who are doing the daily work of bringing technology to legal education and are the core of the Teknoids list. I need Teknoids to submit session proposals for CALIcon18, now is the time.

With only 18 days until the submission deadline of Friday March 2, we only have a handful of proposals submitted (3 to be exact). There are 2 full days of conference to fill so that means we need around 36 sessions for a full agenda. We set an earlier deadline for proposals this year based on feedback from last year when folks told us they wanted to know what the agenda would be earlier in the spring in order to make decisions about attending.

CALIcon18 is Thursday & Friday, June 7 & 8, 2018 at American University Washington College of Law in Washington DC. You can find all the details and submit a session proposal by creating an account and logging in at http://2018.calicon.org/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2F2018.calicon.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7Ctomryan%40camden.rutgers.edu%7C46797d49480b46b2d90c08d5722db9ed%7Cb92d2b234d35447093ff69aca6632ffe%7C1%7C0%7C636540463078218967&sdata=7yzpUOynjgsOstbE06ItiAXZYwlinGsquZ2Oq5a5ygM%3D&reserved=0>.

I hope to see many of you in June.
