Subject: IAGR Johannesburg 2017 Call for Topics and Speakers

IAGR Annual Conference
, South Africa
Late 2017

Dear Members,

While the Conference Sub-Committee continues its work to finalize the venue and dates for this year's IAGR Annual Conference, the focus also turns to program development for the Johannesburg gathering.  The Program Co-Chair seeks your input to identify those topics and issues which are a current priority to your jurisdiction and you feel would be of interest to conference attendees.  Should the range of subjects identified exceed the available time to be included within the main conference programme, it may be that we can connect similarly interested members to make their own arrangements to pursue conversations at mutually convenient times during the time we have together.
