On June 23, 2018, the board of directors had their second meeting of 2018 to discuss budgeting and programing for the Fall semester of 2018. The symposium will likely be held on Sunday, October 28, or November 4, 2018. Potential speakers were recommended. Details will be available soon. We also used this opportunity to formally send off our colleague Kexin Zhang, who will start an exciting new job in Florida.
