Please note that early registration for the RSTM National Conference ends 9/1, and late registration ends 9/20!  We encourage you take advantage of the conference this year if at all possible, because we’ve been told that we will probably not be able to hold it next year. Also please let it be known if you want this valuable resource back in the future!
