In addition to this programming, we put out a call for ECP relevant programming to highlight and are pleased to offer this ECP Relevant Programming Guide that you can use to help plan your time at convention. As always, be sure to stop by the SCP hospitality suite and grab a “Div 17 ECP” flag for your name badge so we’ll be able to spot each other in the crowds and increase our networking opportunities. We hope many of you have submitted your applications to join the committee; we are currently reviewing those applications and look forward to welcoming new members to our committee at convention. Finally, if you have any ideas for issues you’d like to see addressed by the committee, be sure to reach out to our chair, Valene Whittaker (valenewhittaker@gmail.com) or our chair-elect, Tiffany O’Shaughnessy (taosh@sfsu.edu). Looking forward to seeing everyone in Denver.
