CWPA Conference in Normal a Great Success!

Thanks to all of you who attended the CWPA Conference at Illinois State University from July 17-20. It was a fabulous conference: the local committee, led by Joyce Walker, made it one of the most comfortable and welcoming conferences we've had in a while, and the plenary speakers--Doug Hesse, Melissa Ianetta, and Duane Roen-- stimulated lively discussion, as did the paper and panel presenters. Thanks, too, to our workshop leaders, Chuck Paine and Linda Adler-Kassner; and our institute leaders, Bob Broad, Diane Kelly-Riley, Beth Boquet, and Neal Lerner.
