Beginning A Conversation: ATHE President Appoints Committee to Craft Conference Site Selection Policy

On behalf of the Governing Council, I would like to thank all of you who shared your thoughts and feelings with us regarding Arizona’s House Bill 2153/Senate Bill 1062 (as well as SB 1070 and SB 2281) and how both existing and proposed legislation might affect ATHE’s planning for Conference 2014. The Association’s Operations Committee members have listened to and discussed your concerns extensively as we have monitored the evolving situation. Though Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has now vetoed SB 1062, I want to assure you that, for ATHE, this is the beginning of a conversation, not the end of one.
