2017 Countdown to Conference

As GEA conference 2017 is fast approaching, we wanted to build momentum and excitement through a series of brief blog posts called Countdown to Conference (C2C). We invite GEA members to contribute short posts (200-500 words) about any topic related to GEA conference (including, but not limited to):

  • Tips and advice for making the most of conference
  • What you’re looking forward to most about GEA conference
  • Why you’ve decided to attend GEA conference
  • Why we need GEA (given the current state of our political and social worlds)
  • Highlights from previous GEA conferences

If you are attending conference, let us know on Twitter using the hashtag: #GEAconf2017
