HSLDA: At a Conference Near You

HSLDA is slated to attend or host 86 events in 42 states in the year 2001. This last weekend included participation in a record eight conferences, marking the halfway point of conference attendance this year, with 44 events yet to come.

Going out to conferences is always an exciting time for HSLDA staff and speakers. We look forward to meeting our members face-to-face and getting to talk with conference attendees. We had two speakers and eight staff members staffing HSLDA tables this past weekend at home school conferences in Wisconsin, Virginia, Alabama, Texas, New Jersey, Arkansas, Mississippi, and California!

Many HSLDA members appreciate the chance to meet HSLDA staff and buy publications at our reduced conference rates. Conferences are also an excellent opportunity to encourage your non-member friends to join HSLDA, since we offer a free book to non-members who join at a conference (and to current members who renew their membership for two years).

To see whether HSLDA will sending a speaker to a conference in YOUR state, please visit the events calendar on our website at http://www.hslda.org/about/calendar/default.asp, call Leah Garber, our exhibit coordinator, at (540) 338-5600. If you have any suggestions as to how we can better serve you while we're at conferences, please let her know. We hope to meet many of you in the weeks to come!
