The reception for Connections has been moved forward to 6pm, today Wednesday. This is open to all Sunbelt participants and has in the past provided a platform for feedback and an opportunity for potential contributors to meet the editorial Board.  Also a good opportunity to thank our authors and reviewers. 

The reception will be held at the Presidential suite of the Marriot, with instructions of how to reach at the registration desk. 

We thank Kayla de la Haye, the conference organisers and the INSNA Board for facilitating this event.
