ISSUE #168 -- *Q1 UPDATE*

======================
From The Editor's Desk
======================

Hello {name},

It's been a few months since our last update. I've been working behind the scenes with several people to plan our next TONMOCON (#tcon7). I also conducted a survey, and it's not too late to weigh in:
TONMOCON VII Planning Survey

However, a few things have been decided. For starters, TONMOCON VII will NOT happen in 2017. Survey responses and conversations have determined that we will be better off waiting until the Spring of 2018, and so that is what we will do. Hopefully this will allow professionals to work with their institutions to secure budget approval to attend, as part of 2018 planning. Note, the event will be in the Northeast U.S. I'll have more info as soon as a specific date is confirmed (which I hope to be very soon).

In fact, the survey itself gives more information about the event, including pricing. I encourage you to take it! There are also open input fields for you to provide me anonymous feedback; here's an example of what one of you had to say:

- "Tonmocon 2015 was my first one and it was so much fun! And nice to be among other people as interested in cephs."

Right on! As always, if you want to discuss or participate in planning in any way, here's our thread:
Dun dun dun.... TONMOCon VII

Ok, there is plenty more going on at TONMO, so let's get to it:
