Welcome to our two new board members Rebecca Askew (UK) and Karen Joe Laidler (Hong Kong), and to our new Secretary/Treasurer John Collins (UK).
The 14th ISSDP conference
The 14th ISSDP conference will be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico, November 17-19, 2021.
As the vaccination distribution has not gone quite as planned and many countries remain in severe lock downs through at least the summer, we have decided to push back the ISSDP Mexico conference to November 17-19, 2021. It is our sincere hope that by waiting until the Fall many of us will be able to meet in person, although we recognize that several of our colleagues may remain unable to travel. Some revisions to the program may be necessary in light of the inability of some speakers to attend. We will be checking in with members and planned speakers in the spring to try to manage these changes, most likely through a message board inside Memberclicks. For travel and conference plans, please check back this Spring.

Happy New Year Members, Participants and Friends,
While we all looked forward to seeing 2020 in the rear-view mirror, it seems that 2021 is starting off with its own share of unexpected challenges. We hope this email finds you all managing the ongoing global situations as well as possible. We are optimistic that it won’t be too much longer before we are able to meet again in person. In the meantime, there are a few items we wanted to share with you, as the ISSDP board has remained quite busy planning some virtual opportunities for members.
