I am writing to personally invite you to the SRAI Chesapeake Chapter Annual meeting happening June 14 at Stevenson University in Owings Mills Maryland.  The daylong meeting kicks off with a keynote from Dr. Glen Johnston who is doing some very interesting research on how geography impacts cultural history. We also have an exciting line-up of concurrent sessions and networking opportunities programmed as well.  If you haven't already registered, it's not too late and if you have a friend or colleague that isn't a member, this is a great introduction to all that SRAI has to offer!
