You are cordially invited to be a part of the 10th anniversary of the TxDLA annual conference. If you are a distance learning practitioner who would like to share your expertise and experiences with attendees, then you have a contribution to make to TxDLA’s 2007 conference by becoming a Presenter.

Something OLD
This year, popular TxDLA conference features introduced last year will continue…. and includes:

The Personalized Conference Planner – take advantage of this tool to help plan your conference activities. Plans are to have this available online in early January, 2007. It's an easy-to-use online tool to help you create and customize your personal TxDLA conference schedule.
The Conference BLOG… again hosted by our very own blogstress, Jennifer Jahedkar . Jennifer will be inviting 2007 conference attendees to join the Conference Blogging Team. If you are interested in attending and reporting on conference sessions and sharing your own conference experiences, check back soon for information on how you can participate.

Something NEW
And something NEW… this year, the TxDLA attendee Bulletin-Board! Want help finding partners to car-pool? Have a spare hotel room that you want to make available for a fellow attendee? Then this bulletin-board might be what you’re looking for. Plans are to have this online mid-January, 2007.

A Special Welcome to First-Time TxDLA Attendees
The welcome mat is out for all of you who will attend TxDLA for the first time. You'll discover invaluable information and resources, and best of all, an entire community of distance learning colleagues ready to communicate, collaborate and connect from the moment you arrive. And, as a first-timer, you are invited to what is becoming one of TxDLA’s traditions – the First Timer’s Breakfast, hosted by John Knue on Tuesday, March 27 from 7:30-8:30 am.
