Apparently, name badges and tote bag tickets for this year’s SBL meeting will be distributed by email:
In an effort to cut down on lines for badge reprints at registration, name badges will no longer be sent via postal mail. Instead, check your e-mail in early November for a special link that will allow you to print your name badge and tote bag ticket to bring with you to San Antonio. If you bring these items to the Annual Meeting, you will not need to stand in line for registration.
When you arrive at the San Antonio Convention Center, you may use your tote bag ticket to pick up a tote bag at the Tote Bag Window, located in the main Lobby outside Exhibit Hall 1. Inside the tote bag will be your lanyard and your name badge holder, and you can slip in your name badge and enjoy the rest of the Annual Meeting!
I had apparently missed this announcement earlier. So, on realizing I didn’t have on hand the usual pre-conference envelope from SBL with these items, I began to wonder if I’d misplaced it and turned up the announcement. Kudos to SBL for this small bit of pre-meeting paperwork reduction and absent-minded professor loss prevention.
