If we are going to try to encourage new members who may have limited
incomes, (adjuncts and first year teachers) having a conference in
Puerto Rico is probably not the way to do it. You are so right for
thinking of a venue change. Even our current members when push comes to
shove may back out. I for one would have to get special permission from
the college president to use professional expense money for this since
its out of the country (as apparently it would be viewed as a vacation
by a faculty member, only administrators get to go on these types of
So I support this and would look forward to having the conference in
spring rather than June as well. As for the added work of a change I so
appreciate you even considering this move and I so appreciate all your
efforts to make this conference a success. I'm just sayin' I hope this
sounds supportive as I am so supportive of whatever you decide...
All the best,
