Dear Colleagues,

 For those who are attending the ASEEES Conference in Chicago, we have a full agenda for the ESSA business meeting, which  will be held on Friday, November 10, at 10:00 a.m. in the Lakeview Room at the hotel, the Marriott Downtown Chicago, Magnificent Mile.

 We will have the installation of a new president, Russell E. Martin. Russ has served two years as vice president, so with his elevation to the presidency, we will have to choose a new vice president.

 Matthew P. Romaniello will be announcing the ESSA Book and Article prizes for 2017 at the meeting.

 We will then choose Matt’s replacement on the Book and Article Prize committee since he has served the requisite three years. We should all be there to thank Matt for his service.

We will also have a report from the Committee of the Future on the direction ESSA should go in during the coming years.

 The ESSA dinner will be at the Indian Garden Restaurant, 247 E. Ontario St., Chicago, about a 5-minute walk from the hotel where the ASEEES conference is being held. The cost of the dinner is $40 + tax + tip. Drinks are not included.

If you plan on attending the dinner, please contact me at,  You can still attend the dinner even if you don't let me know. It is so that I can give the restaurant management a rough number of how many diners to plan for.

The dinner is scheduled for Friday, November 10th, at 7:45 pm to follow the presentation to Nancy Shields Kollmann of a Festschrift at the Stanford University reception.


All the best,

Don Ostrowski,
