Hello Cindy and James!
Thanks for your offers. Yes, I think a conference would be valuable, and I
know the facilities James offered are very beautiful, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I have been there and I was really impressed!
Would you like to coordinate your conference with a SignWriting seminar, Cindy?
We could hold a SignWriting Seminar here in San Diego..... Participants
could study directly with me and members of the DAC. I live in La Jolla, a
suburb of San Diego, about three miles from the beach, Salk Institute and
UCSD. If the seminar is small, we could hold it in my home. If it is
larger, as a non-profit, we can receive donated facilities in La Jolla.
Would you be interested in this idea?
