It was nice to see so many busy Texas-Mexico Chapter members in Washington, D.C.! Busy is the operative word as we go forward with the responsibility of planning and hosting next year’s 43rd Annual Conference in Fort Worth. As Chapter President, I now appreciate how much effort it takes to pull off such an event and thus we should all be extremely grateful to the Local Arrangements and Programming Co-Chairs for their diligent and dedicated work so far.
Our theme New Frontiers on the Old Frontier sums up perfectly what Fort Worth will offer our Society. A pioneer city that embraces the arts like no other, the first-class museums alone will more than impress a first time visitor. My informal quips to colleagues in Washington about the wonders of Fort Worth were greeted very positively with affirming remarks that they couldn’t wait to experience it.
Another important ARLIS/NA event happening this year is our Annual Chapter Meeting to be held in Orange, Texas on October 17-19. As Fort Worth may seem new and unexplored to many of our ARLIS/NA colleagues, so Orange may seem to our own chapter members! I can assure you that this small border town is loaded with charm and incredible cultural venues that any larger city would envy!
More announcements on that later…
