On March 2, 2017, in Events, General, Newsletter, by IAegerter

“I would like to acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of this land and pay my respects to the Elders both past and present.” As a sign of respect, every public event in Australia starts with acknowledging the native population.

Well that isn’t what I expected to happen… If you were paying attention to the AST board of directors election which took place during CAST 2016 in Vancouver, you likely noticed I was not re-elected to the board. Even though I am no longer on the board, as of this October, this is not a […]
