Dear Colleagues:

We hope that you will join us for our 2017 Annual Meeting at St. Mary’s University in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, from May 5-7, 2017.

Our website will be updated with the latest information about online registration, meal tickets, conference housing, and transportation information.

St. Mary’s University is a private Catholic university in Canada whose mission is to prepare students to become “lifelong learners, engaged citizens and compassionate members of society.” Open to all, St. Mary’s University is focused on developing the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Immersed in the Catholic intellectual tradition, St. Mary’s seeks to help students live with integrity, compassion and confidence. Its liberal arts education introduces students to “the breadth and depth of human intellectual experience, an unrestrained search for meaning and purpose that enables students to achieve the full measure of their being. It is a place that promotes understanding of and respect for the inherent dignity that defines society.”

Anne Moore, our PNWAAR/SBL/ASOR President, will deliver the Presidential Address on Friday, May 5 at 8 pm.

Our Banquet Speaker this year is Claudia Camp from Texas Christian University. She will speak on Saturday, May 6th at 8 pm.

You have the option when you register to purchase meal tickets for a buffet before the Presidential Plenary on Friday and the Banquet on Saturday night. We hope you will join us!
