On this rather dark Monday (both weather-wise, and cyber-wise since the toaster I want didn't go on sale) I suggest you turn your thoughts not toward the holidays (though they certainly can't come soon enough), but to your professional association's cherished publication, Off the Record.
OTR has been going strong thanks to your fantastic contributions over the past year. Let's make 2019 just as excellent! Please send me short articles on the things that interest you, news on what's going on at your institution, and reflections on past initiatives and events.
Since I don't wish for you to have to leave the crackling fireside or try to hit 'send' while navigating your way to Grandma's over the holidays, I've extended the submission deadline to Monday, January 7th.
You can find all necessary submission details here, but when in doubt, send me a note!
All my thanks,
OTR Editor | firstname.lastname@example.org
