Message from Paula Sullenger (Nov 14):

"Just a reminder to have agenda ideas submitted by Monday, if possible. At this point the planning group needs to know how many rooms we need, so please submit your session topic, approximate number of attendees, and if you think you’ll need Zoom. You can firm up your agenda later.

Also, there is a new Slack channel for discussing FOLIO issues for the upcoming WOLFCon: # folio-wolfcon2020."
