NEW: Roundtable Discussions
New to the 2016 Conference & Meeting are Roundtable Discussions, scheduled on Monday, May 9 during the first 45 minutes of lunch.  The discussions are intended to generate conversation among members by dedicating several tables to assigned topics. We anticipate participants joining tables with questions and ideas to share, and seeking guidance and feedback from the table leaders as well as other attendees.We hope that these discussions will open up dialogues between curators at all stages of their careers. Roundtables are filled on a first come basis, with about 10 spots per table available. Please review the topics now and think about what table you want to join! Click here for information on topics.
