BJS Conference Schedule

The annual BJS Conference kicks off tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM with our welcome reception. We have had a few calls about the schedule and so we are reprinting it here. It looks like we will have over 100 registrants, which is up 20% from last year. They are coming from New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington, Minnesota, Missouri, and all sorts of other states. If you couldn’t make it this year, start making plans to join our growing group next year for the second weekend in February. We also hope to have some mini-conferences around the country, so we may be coming to you.

Here is the schedule: (for future reference, items like this are archived on the “Regular Columns” page under “BJS Newsreel.”)

  1. Looks like another good slate of guests, From someone snowbound in DE, will the presentations be made available on the web? I would like that. Safe travels for all involved.


  2. My thoughts exactly Jeremy.
    Will someone be posting all the details of the Katy Luther organizational meeting for us, girlies, who can’t make it? Pretty please?!
