It’s here! The ASBA 14th Annual Meeting and Conference Online Registration Web site is live and running. Click on the link to learn more about the exciting workshops, field trips, and special events planned for this year’s conference. This year we’ll all meet at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA, and at the Pasadena Hilton, from October 30 – November 1, 2008.

Visit the conference website often! We will be updating the Exhibitors’ Hall, instructors’ bios and images and will also be posting class materials lists on the website. Bookmark the site and keep up with what’s new.

We are also having pre- and post- conference classes, sponsored by BAGSC. Anne-Marie Evans will be teaching her five-day class right before the conference. It’s a great way to get started. After the conference, Alexander “Sasha” Viazmensky will teach a three-day mushroom class. Jenny Phillips and Pandora Sellars will each teach a five-day class. To sign up, contact Deborah Shaw. Additional information about each of the pre- and post-conference classes will be posted in the next few days.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in October!
