To the Members of the Cascadia Advisory Board,

We are scheduling a meeting on Sunday, March 31, 2013, at 4P at Spring Street Center, 1101 15th in Seattle. We’ll give folks an update on developments with SPLAB, the the 2014 Festival and related matters.

We are going to need all the help we can get to make the next iteration of the Festival successful. It’s scheduled for May 2-4, 2014, at Seattle U and we are

delighted to have Seattle U as a co-sponsor. Please consider attending, even if you are not yet officially on the Ad Board. Thanks also to Poets & Writers, SICA and 4Culture for their support and you for your interest in this work.

Sincerely,

Paul Nelson
