This month we launched the new Regional Events webpage masthead. The design concept grew out of a conversation on the Regional Reps discussion board about translations of the English word “dream.” We have had some very nice feedback on the new look. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the project, and we look forward to being able to share continuing project outcomes.
