LSAG Open Spring Meeting:  Save the Date
April 30th   *  This will be a formal business meeting of upcoming LSAG business & a communication session for convention.

If you have a question, please ask it during the month of April PRIOR to the meeting.  We have much to cover in the meeting, and in consideration of everyone's time, and in consideration of our time limits at the venue, questions that can be answered in advance or in our notes to be handed out at the meeting is the most efficient way to cover all areas.  Send questions to the president at  no later than April 23rd, one week prior to the meeting.  They will either be answered via email the week before the meeting or in the meeting notes.
