Here is the call for the EMERGING TALENT Nominations. I am sorry about the
short timeline, but bwe would like to get the names on the poster. Just so
you know, the tile Emerging Talent IMHO is a bit far from perfect, but
rather than spending valuable NCECA Board time discussing changes in it I
have tried to use time on more substantive issues. I favor "new" over
emerging. Others have expressed problems with the use of "talent", probably
becuase hard work might be more important.
