There is so much more at a conference than just sitting in a room listening to a presenter. Don't miss the opportunities to experience local history and tourist areas while at an ARSL conference. The 2012 Welcome Reception in Raleigh, NC held at the former State House illustrated a sobering moment in our nation's past. Note the uneven stairs that were caused by wheelbarrows hauled up the stairs by slaves to heat the building. Join us in Tacoma for ARSL 2014 to see what else you can learn outside of the classroom.
