The Nor’easter that moved up the east coast Thursday has wreaked havoc, and travel plans are still in flux. Members of the SAMR executive committee are caught up in this, too, and have decided to cancel the annual business meeting scheduled for Friday, January 5.
We are still looking forward to see you all in Boston this weekend! SAMR will hold an informal business meeting, has programmed one formal session with the SCS on Drama and the Religious in Ancient Greece, and in addition SAMR members have programmed a session of interest with the AIA.
CANCELLED: Annual Business Meeting Friday, January 5, 5:00-6:00 PM.
The annual business meeting scheduled for Friday afternoon, 5:00-6:00 PM in the Courier Room of the Westin Hotel has been cancelled due to travel delays at Logan. We will, however, conduct a brief business meeting Sunday afternoon immediately following our paper session (session 79 – see below).
