***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I am pleased to say that the Political Networks conference marches into the Rockies this June. I think it is fair to say that this conference is a great venue for those of you interested in politics and networks, broadly defined, and encompassing many methodological and disciplinary orientations. And if you have not but are so inclined, this is also a great season to bring those theoretical and methodological perspectives from the study of social networks to politics. dl Mark your calendars! **** Please save the date on your calendars for the 5th Annual Political Networks Conference and Training Sessions, hosted by the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Denver, June 13-16, 2012.
