Laissez le bons temps rouler.

Dear SHEARites, four weeks until we meet in New Orleans for our 43rd annual conference.  If you have pre-registered, thank you.  If you haven’t, please pre-register today. SHEAR does not require presenters to be members of SHEAR but it does ask that all panelists register for the conference.  Pre-registration closes next week, Friday 1 July, so if you miss the window you will have to register on-site and pay a $30 supplement.  If you are a graduate student presenting at the conference, your registration is free.  However, you must still register.

On-site conference registration is open 5:00 to 7:30 pm on Thursday 20 July at the registration desk in the conference hotel, and continues until Sunday.

I send you traveling mercies and I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans soon.  If you need anything before then, please email me at

Robyn Lily Davis, Ph.D.
