50 for 50

SHAFR is celebrating its 50th anniversary at the annual meeting. There can be no better demonstration of SHAFR’s vitality than the sheer intellectual energy, enthusiasm, and collegiality at the conference. You are invited to consider making a financial “thank-you” to SHAFR in honor of this anniversary and to support our continued success. Though the slogan “50 for 50” suggests a $50 gift, any amount (such as $5 from a strudent or a more generous contribution) will be greatly appreciated. All contributions are tax-deductible.

The SHAFR 2017 Annual Meeting was held at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View, Arlington, VA (Washington, DC Area) from June 22, 23, 24, 2017.
