    Who among us taxonomists are attending SLA in Charlotte in person?

    In past years there was a conference Connect group, but there does not seem to be on this year, so it's difficult to know who will be there.

    I will be there, and I am about to book my flights. Unless there will be a taxonomist networking event Saturday evening (which does not seem likely, since I have not heard anything), I will arrive on Sunday around noon and stay through Tuesday (noon or end of day).
    I'm willing to share my hotel room, if anyone want to cut costs. I've done that before. Email me directly if interested.


    In addition to three on-demand taxonomy-related talks, there are the following in-person taxonomy related sessions/events:

    Sunday, 3:20 - 4:05 pm
    The Role of DEI in Taxonomy Development, Maintenance, Search, and Retrieval

    Sunday, 4:30 - 5:30 pm
    Panel: Current challenges and advanced taxonomy topics

    Monday, 5:00 - 6:00 pm
    Taxonomy Division Open Community Business Meeting

    Additionally, I will speak on panel that's not specifically taxonomy focused, although I will speak about the taxonomy community
    Tuesday, 9:00 - 10:00 am
    Communities of Practice: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

    Browse or search the schedule here, for more details

    Early-bird registration ends June 15.
    If your employer won't pay, consider one-day only, such as for Sunday (with opening keynote) for only $250 early-bird member price.

    Hope to see some of you there.

    Hi Heather,

    I unfortunately will not be attending SLA. All this moving around of dates has caused a conflict with another meetingI have to attend as I am on the board. I will miss you all

    Hi Heather, 

    Unfortunately I cannot attend in person. I will likely attend the virtual only.

    Hi Heather,

    I'll be at a family reunion in Minnesota that week so I won't make it.

    Hope it's interesting!
