Hello Friends of the Crown,                              October 14, 2015

Attending the conference this September was a great way to start my new job as Coordinator of the Crown Roundtable (CRT). I got a big dose of inspiration and ideas from everyone in the room. After stepping away from the Crown for three years and then coming back, I'm stunned by the great progress that has been made with partnerships and connections among our diverse groups.

We're all so busy, I'm always so thankful when you take the time to meet up, share yourselves and your work, and open up to new ideas and colleagues from around the Crown. So if you were able to come to the Missoula - thank you! - and if not, we missed you and hope to see you next year. Here is the conference summary report for those of you who couldn't make it, or those of you who did but missed a breakout session you were curious about. We've also posted all the presentations that we could get a hold of on the website. More will be added as they come in. Embedded in the summary report are short descriptions of talks, panels and breakouts; a list of attendees; a list of conference sponsors; presentations at the poster session; and speaker biographies.

If there is any additional information that you need or want to get in touch with someone, please let me know and I'll help you get connected. As we begin planning next year's conference and looking for additional ways the CRT can assist collaboration in the Crown, please let me know about any ideas that you have. I'm looking forward to working with you and your networks of colleagues and neighbors this next year.
