The Current Repertoire
Winter/Spring 2017
Volume 33, Number 1
From the Executive Director

2017 has the Center busy with new publications, annual conferences and collaborations with affiliate organizations.
A big change this year is that our 2017 Annual Meeting of the Trustees will be shortened to a 4-hour event, the morning following the ABAI 43rd Convention in Denver, CO. This new meeting time should save time and travel costs for our supporting volunteers. There will be a nominal fee ($50.) to attend to cover the cost of the room and breakfast. Those registering late at the door will be charged $75. (Register Now)
During the ABAI Convention, we are also holding a Reunion event, great for catching up with old friends and for making new ones. I hope to see you there. 
Your continued support through purchasing our publications, attending our conferences/webinars and taking our online continuing education courses all go to help us achieve our mission.  Also remember to make all your Amazon purchases through Amazon Smile (Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases. Choose the Cambridge Center for your charitable organization.)
Enjoy the news from the Center,
