Those of you who attended our last Technical Conference in Los Angeles in the spring of 2001 know what a great learning and sharing experience it was. We are really excited about our plans for the 2003 Amsterdam conference, and we know that it will be a spectacular event.
This conference is the place to learn more about new developments. There will be many opportunities to meet other Members, Friends, and the DAISY staff and to share experiences.
Conference registration is now open, and we encourage you to reserve your accommodations and register as soon as possible.
