Unable to attend the SBL Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.? Here are a few highlights. . .

The 2006 joint meeting of the AAR and SBL convened in Washington, DC on November 17 with a record 11,370 religious and biblical scholars in attendance. . .




Ninety-eight percent of attendees visited the exhibit hall, which featured 333 booths. SBL's booth also had a new look . . .




The registration area, as always, was a place for greeting old friends and making new ones. . .




Attendees navigated the conference center. . .




The President made his address. . .




SBL celebrated 125 years of publications. . .




More sessions were available than ever before, with an increase from 350 to 400 this year.




Many of the sessions were standing (read "sitting") room only! Eighty-one percent of members report attending at least four sessions. . .




The various receptions were well-attended. . .




And the SBL and AAR staff actively participated in the important work of their organizations. . .




If you missed the 2006 meeting, be sure to attend the 2007 meeting in San Diego! We look forward to seeing you there!
