To: The NMLA Membership
On behalf of the NMLA Board, it is with regret that I write to inform you that we have made the decision to cancel the April 3rd and 4th Mini-Conference at Laguna. The organization and the board are in a state of transition and reorganization. The uncertainty about the Bylaws and calendar changes produced unanticipated delays in distributing pre-conference information. Given this situation, we decided that it was inappropriate to proceed.
We will soon have the results of the latest membership vote on revision of the Bylaws and on election of new officers. If the membership votes to approve the Bylaws change there will be the annual conference in Ruidoso in October 2014. If membership does not approve the Bylaws change, then we will plan for a Mini-Conference in October 2014 according to the current Bylaws calendar.
I would like to acknowledge the exceptional effort of the conference program and local arrangements committees who worked extremely hard on the April Mini-Conference.
Thank you for your understanding.
Mary Ellen Pellington, President
