A couple of quick plugs: (1) the SNAP Roundtable is sponsoring a Rideshare/Roomshare/Housing spreadsheet to help people find roomies during the Annual Meeting, (2) the local host committee blog is up and running and will feature dining, entertainment, and shopping guides, logistical travel/hotel information, and general information about the city of New Orleans.
See you all in NOLA!
