Is there a plan to meet at the Higher Ground conference in Boulder? I will be there and would like to put faces to the names of other ATHEN members.

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: <http://staff.washington.edu/danc/athen/bylaws.html> http://staff.washington.edu/danc/athen/bylaws.html

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.
