Good afternoon from sunny Corvallis, Oregon.

ATHEN is still alive but it would appear we are on life support at this
point primarily due to the budget woes we are all dealing with.

Anyone want to give a project update?

As to the bylaws, the most recent draft can be found at:

Please send any revisions to me and I will work with the respective
folks as needed.

And now for a public service announcement:

I would like to strongly encourage any of you who can to attend the
Accessing Higher Ground conference in mid-November. I personally find it
to be one of the most valuable professional growth opportunities that I
participate in. CSUN is great for macro exposure, but AHG is a small
conference with very high quality content and Boulder is a great town
for a conference.

Here are the details:


CU-Boulder, in collaboration with WGBH, Boston, EASI, & others,
will be sponsoring the sixth annual Assistive Technology and Accessible
Media in Higher Education Conference.
