OpenVA closed for the winter

ODLR ConferenceEveryone talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it.

Because of the threat of severe winter weather, the First Annual Open and Digital Learning Resources Conference to be held at the University of Mary Washington this Thursday (March 7th) is going to be rescheduled for Fall 2013. It can’t be helped. While it is uncertain how badly the storm will impact the Fredricksburg area–forecasts are calling for anywhere from 0-4 inches of snow–it is likely Southwest Virginia, where almost half of the conference’s registrants are from, will be hit pretty hard. So rather than risk holding a sparsely-attended conference for those who can brave the storm, the OpenVA steering committee wisely decided to cancel the conference, regroup, and reschedule for Fall 2013.

The Fall conference will still be held at the University of Mary Washington. I will post the new date and call for proposals here once a new time has been identified.
