Dear ALCM member:
Greetings on this Easter Monday!
Several conference registration deadlines are coming up, and we wanted to send you one more reminder, so that you can get the best rates for this summer's conferences. Details and registration deadlines are listed below.
 For the most up-to-date information on the conferences, visit the ALCM web site at www.alcm.org.
Also, check out the opportunity to raise additional money for ALCM by downloading the ALCM GoodSearch toolbar. This is a program in which we have participated for several years. With this toolbar, it will now be easier to credit your searches to ALCM.
