Mark your calendars

Melody Hensley of CFI has just announced a tentative date of 17-19 May 2013 for Women In Secularism 2. I guess the first one was a big success!

    I. AM. THERE.

    I don’t care if I have to sell my eggs on the black marget. I will be there.

  2. DLC says

    illumninata @2: It might be a scramble, but I’m sure you’ll manage to pullet off.

  3. Atheist in a Mitten says

    :( The weekend of my wedding. I hope that there will be another one.

  4. Valindrius says

    I truly regret that I cannot attend as I know it would be an amazing source of education on a lot of vital, fundamental issues. Sadly, my university pretends that June is actually May (as well as that dogs are a form of cat) so I’ll be preparing for exams at the time.

    It’s just a little bit pre-emptive but I hope everyone that’s already planning to attend has an astounding time and that nothing interferes with your desire to attend.

  5. Sili says

    Hmmm. Pentecost, so I might actually be able to clear the calendar.

    Moneywise, though …

  6. says

    @SallyStrange I’m banking on the phrase “tentative” date. If it ends up being the weekend after (in the same place as this year), well, we’re going to D.C. for our honeymoon anyway!

  7. dogeared, spotted and foxed says

    Terrific! I’ve been kicking myself for missing the last one.

  8. says

    Thanks Melody! Hopefully WIS-CFI 2 won’t have a clash with other conferences on the same weekend, as happened this year. The chances of being able to attend conferences in the US are pretty much nil for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enthuse about other members of the Horde going!

  9. canadianchick says

    it does clash again – with the same conference. To the best of my knowledge, Imagine No Religion 3 will also be that weekend – it’s a long weekend in Canada (Victoria Day), which is why that weekend is chosen.

    not that I could have gone to WIS, but I hate it when conferences have to duke it out over speakers!

    Once again, I’ll whine about the cost. I’m all for providing mid-grade motel accommodations and reasonable fees for speakers, but please, pick school auditoria and classrooms for venues to save money. Making it too expensive for students and other people with lower incomes to attend is counterproductive.
