Meeting Dates 2017 and IQSC Calendar

Group Photo:

As our region is being featured on the SAQA blog soon, they would like some photos of our members. We were not too successful with coming up with too many, but we do have an opportunity at the conference to meet up for a photo.

If everyone who is coming to the conference will send me a quick email to let me know they are attending, I will try to hook us up with Jayne Gaskins, the author of the article. Here are her thoughts about getting a photo at the conference.

“I was thinking that, if NE is meeting somewhere, it would be a great opportunity for a group shot – maybe in front of the Passages exhibit? It would give us a group visual and would be a nice way to say “Thanks for coming to Nebraska!” If so, please let me know when and where so I can show up with my camera.”

I would like to try to make this happen, so if you are attending the conference, or will be in Lincoln I will try to set a time to get the photo. I know we are touring the museum during the conference and perhaps we can do it then. I will let you know after I hear back from those who will be attending or in the area.

Email me directly at: isoqlts@hotmail.com to let me know. Thanks!!
