IAJGS Conference in NYC #latvia


Barry Shay
 

Although it is early in 2006, I want to remind all of you about the IAJGS
Conference in NYC which will be held at the Marriot Marquis Hotel >from the
13th to the 18th of August. Information about the conference can be found
at: http://www.jgsny2006.org/. I am expecting a large turnout of Latvia
Siggers and I'd like to get an idea of who will be attending the conference
and what your interests are. For this conference, we will have a SIG
luncheon and two SIG meetings as well as a SIG Fair. The luncheon has
already been scheduled for Monday, 14 August. One meeting will be devoted to
Latvia SIG business, and the other to topics of interest to the SIG
membership.

I am in the process of developing an agenda for the meetings, so I'd like to
hear what you would like us to cover and discuss. Please send your ideas and
suggestions to me directly. If you or a colleague have been to Latvia and
would like to present highlights of your trip and research findings, let me
know. If you or a colleague have questions, research tips, interesting
stories or personal histories that you think would be of interest to the
membership, let me know. Finally, if you are planning to attend, let me
know.

Happy New Year to all of you, and I hope to see many of you in New York this
summer.

Barry Shay
President, Latvia SIG
