Hello Everyone,

Welcome to May! eLCC 2017 was fantastic! First of all, we have to thank the eLCC Conference committee and all the conference volunteers for their hard work and dedication.

Our next eLCC Monthly Meeting May 19th is at Colorado State University
It’s almost the end of the academic year. Hopefully, everyone will be finished up and be able to take up Colorado State University (Greg, Marianne, Al, Katy and Karen)’s invitation to come up to Fort Collins. RSVP to Marianne.Bauer@colostate.edu by May 15. For full details, please go to the post on the eLCC website.
