Hello, DLF Community! It’s hard to believe that the in-person DLF Forum will take place at Michigan State University at the end of this month. We are so excited to head to East Lansing! If you are interested in attending in person, we have a handful of spots left – registration will remain open until we sell out or until July 15. We’re also looking ahead to our virtual event in the fall, for which we’ll release the program and open registration later this month. And in the meantime, though summer is a bit quieter for many of our Working Groups, folks are still busy and meeting, so be sure to check out the Community Calendar to join them. We look forward to seeing you around soon!

– Team DLF
