From the Editors

By Maria Tammone (Italy) and Christina Emanuel (USA)

Dear IARPP Members,

We are pleased to bring you the current edition of the eNews, our online newsletter linking IARPP members around the world with news from our community.

In this issue we feature news from the IARPP Conference Committee as they share information about the upcoming 14th annual International Conference taking place May 25-28 in Sydney, Australia. In addition to details about the conference itself, Cathy Hicks (Australia) and Sarah Calvert (New Zealand) provide information about travel to Australia and events in Sydney that you might enjoy during your visit.

In international news, several local chapters submitted updates about their various activities and programs, including an upcoming program being put on by IARPP-Mexico featuring Jonathan Slavin (USA) and Miki Rahmani (Israel). A number of members sent announcements as well of relational events around the world, including a program in Mexico featuring members of IARPP-Spain, and educational programs in Turkey.

News from the various IARPP committees rounds out this issue. In particular, the Colloquium Committee is now led by Rina Lazar (Israel) and Adrienne Harris (USA), who share news of the upcoming colloquium this June. In addition, our IARPP President, Chana Ullman (Israel), shares some important developments taking place at our organization.

Our next deadline for submissions will be June 16, 2017.
 Please read below for instructions to submit pieces for future editions of the Bookshelf and eNews.
