Husserl Circle Meeting: Helsinki 2015

Secretary's Letter

Dear Colleague,

Enclosed please find this year’s program together with a letter from the Convenors with information about the conference, including lodging and a link to a website dedicated to this year’s meeting.

I would like to take this occasion to remind presenters that you have 30 minutes and commentators that you have 10 minutes.

If you are not current with your dues, you will also find enclosed a helpful reminder of your balance due. For the Circle to continue to thrive it’s crucial that members remain current with their dues, independent of whether they are attending a given year’s meeting.

Thanks.

With best wishes,

Burt Hopkins

Permanent Secretary
