Tempus Fugit

It's not too late to register for next weekend's 52nd Annual Institute! The Institute officially kicks off the evening of Thursday 10/22, at the Crowne Plaza Syracuse with the Plenary Session, followed by the President's Reception. On Friday morning the sessions begin in earnest, followed by a luncheon, and then the afternoon workshops. Attendees are encouraged to explore Syracuse Saturday afternoon, after the workshops end for the day. To help you plan your outing, Visit Syracuse has provided some materials for you to take when you arrive. Friday evening's banquet features a keynote by noted historian, classicist and author Barry Strauss of Cornell University. Saturday morning features even more sessions. The conference adjourns by lunch time, leaving plenty of time to enjoy Syracuse, or travel home.

Our emporium exhibitors include Bolchazy-Carducci, who will have an impressive display of publications and materials, as well as their free Roman calendar/catalog. This is your chance to get your hands on their many unique offerings, rather than just reading descriptions in a catalog. Please be sure to visit their representative, Don, and say "Salve!"

Whether you plan to come out for a day, or make a weekend of it, the Annual Institute is a one-of-a-kind event in New York State. Please check out the final program, and be sure to register soon. We hope to see you in Syracuse.

Annual Institute Update

Registrations are still being accepted for the 52nd Annual Institute! We have a wonderful panel of presenters, and are piloting some "hands on" workshops which have been designed based on feedback from past Institute attendees. Professor Barry Strauss, author of The Trojan War and The Spartacus War, will be giving the keynote at Friday's banquet. Copies of his latest book, The Death of Caesar, will be available at the Institute. (You may have seen the professor the other night in PBS's latest episode of Secrets of the Dead, "The Real Trojan Horse.")

Please don't delay in registering. There are various registration options, as well as payment options. You can register online and choose to pay online, to mail payment, or even to pay at the door. Regardless of which you choose, please register soon.
