ALAN Online News - November 2012
This month's newsletter is short and sweet, focusing on info about the upcoming ALAN Workshop. But first, we have exciting news from the Merchandise Committee! If you, like many ALAN members around the country, are gearing up for Las Vegas on November 19th and 20th, you will want to check out the ALAN Marketplace now. 

ALAN has T-shirts for everyone! And baseball jerseys, coffee mugs, tote bags, and more. Thanks to the Merchandise Committe: Daria Plumb, chair, Ricki Ginsberg, Barb Dean, Jennifer Dail, Emily Hernberg, and Shanetia Clark. They've worked for months to develop the designs and merchandise that will help us spread the word about ALAN. 
Our president cj Bott has a great line-up of speakers planned for the workshop, and I know you don't want to miss a thing. Below are the ALAN Essentials - all you need to know to get you to every event on time.
Hope to see you soon in Vegas!
