March is just around the corner…

As we revel in the icy purgatory that is New England in February, our thoughts, naturally, turn to Spring. And it’s never too early to start thinking about the NEA/A.R.T. Joint Meeting, especially since early-bird registration ends on Monday, February 12.

If you’ve registered for the meeting already but aren’t sure about your housing or transport plans, check out our room- and rideshare signup sheet! We’ll be updating here soon with more Spring Meeting-centric ideas and details on a pre-meeting meetup, so stay tuned.
