Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Imagine that you have been working on an awesome and completely presentation-worthy topic. You have been
working hard on your research and refining your techniques, and now you want to share your findings
with other linguists. So you go to LINGUIST List and you start to search in our convenient
Calls and Conferences Index when you get a big red sign that says: "Sorry, due to lack of funding
we can no longer support our Calls and Conferences Index." What do you do then? What do you do
if you're a graduate student and don't have any networks within the linguistics community to
find out about other conferences?

You see, the thing about LINGUIST List is that we do the work for you. We provide an easy-to-use
web submission form for submitters to provide call and conference information. Then, we do the
editing and formatting as well as any updating to the submission to keep it relevant to our users.
If this resource went away, this one-stop Conference hot spot would mean a lot more steps for you
to get the information you need.

I don't want to see that big red sign and I don't think you do either. So consider donating today:

Best Regards,

Amy Brunett
Conferences Editor
