Symposium 2011: The Hosts & Visiting Research Advisors

The International Center for Law and Religion Studies is grateful once again this year for the indispensable help of our friends who have volunteered to assist in hosting delegates to the annual International Law and Religion Symposium. This year’s hosts were led by a Hosting Committee comprised of chairs Linda Nearon and Lynn Anderson, with committee members Jim & Bonnie Pollock, Scott & Chris Cameron, and Kelly & Tamra Reeves, along with Center personnel Deborah Wright, Gary Doxey, and Bob Smith. A number of this year’s hosts have served with us for some time, and we express our continual gratitude to these generous people for making the Symposium such a memorable experience for all who attend, year after year. We enthusiastically welcome those who have more recently joined us as hosts, and we look forward to a long and fruitful association.
