After a Successful Conference in 2017 another is planned for 2018!
The Society was pleased to welcome well over one hundred participants to its 2017 Conference in Savannah. Such has been the positive response that the Board at its meeting on the last day of the Conference decided announce its intention to hold another conference next year in what it is hoped will become an annual event. Further details of the time will be announced later this year in good time to allow for plans to be made well in advance.
Meanwhile, the Society looks forward to making the addresses and summaries of the interlocutor responses from the 2017 Conference available as soon as the technicalities allow.
