  1. Thanks for another great list of events and awards, Laura.

    I always read your updates.

    Always.

      I sometimes wonder whether we should continue with the events roundups, but then we get good feedback like yours, Joel. I take it that people find them useful.

      Luckily we have the new Events Calendar rocking, and it stays well populated. The events post itself is semi-automated, with data pulled from the calendar. So it takes a lot less time to create these updates than it did last year.

      • Anita,

        I have a feeling that I’m not the only one who reads the posts here from Laura on upcoming events and awards.

        Please keep doing these!
