I wish to thank again Jana Adamitis for hosting a wonderful spring meeting at Christopher Newport University in Newport News -- the facilities, food, and hospitality were first-rate! If you have never been on the CNU campus, it is definitely worth the visit! I wish to also thank those members of the CAV who attended our latest meeting. There were great talks, camaraderie, and a VAST silent auction with a little bit of something for everybody! Unfortunately, I have discovered that the location of the meeting has little effect on attendance by members in the vicinity. While the physical setting was outstanding, there was no increase in attendance by members who live in the southeastern part of the state. I think this sends us all a message that it really doesn’t matter where the meeting is held, and those who want to attend will make the effort no matter where the location.

The fall meeting of the Classical Association of Virginia will be held on Saturday, September 30 on the grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Also remember that the annual meeting of the Foreign Language Association of Virginia (FLAVA) will be held at the Williamsburg Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center October 4-7, 2017. Be sure to mark your calendars now and join us for interesting presentations, stimulating conversations, food and drink at both these professional opportunities! Be sure to enjoy your summer!

Curate ut valeatis!
