To briefly update you the 2009 Streams Conference Planning Committee and I are working hard to make this a meaningful and affordable conference for everyone to attend. In the very near future we will have a Scholarship Application available with deadlines posted for those who could not afford to attend otherwise. In addition, we are hopeful to be able to offer continuing education credits which will be included in the registration process. As soon as this information is ready for distribution I will be in contact with you again. I look forward to meeting you in Portland!
