Our staff met on Saturday March 23rd at 2 pm our staff gathered amid great excitement; The next Transcending Boundaries Conference will take place April 4-6 of 2014 at the Hartford Sheraton at Bradley Airport! The Sheraton has been incredibly generous with space and offers an excellent reduced rate for the room block. More importantly, we believe having the entire event in one building will help to foster the feeling of community that is central to TBC's philosophy. We'll let you know as soon as reservations open and our staff will be working with the hotel to meet all accessibility needs and provide transportation information.

Location wasn't the only big news to come out of this meeting. We also chose the 2014 theme, "Inclusion In Action." TBC strives to be inclusive to people representing all aspects of the gender, sexuality and relationship spectrum and we're thrilled to be highlighting that this year. It'll be a while before we start requesting presentations proposals so now is a great time to think about what you could add to our programming.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday April 14 at 6:30 PM and at this meeting we will be discussing options for our next keynote speaker. We are asking as many people as possible to attend the meeting "in person" at one of two locations (one in Springfield MA and one in Medford MA, near Boston). This will leave the maximum space available in our google hangout for our out of town staff. This is a big meeting and we hope you'll all be there!
