JMM 2020

Thank you to everyone who came and participated!

At the 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Denver we held several large meetups for IBLC leaders, participants, and interested parties. A special thanks to Megan Selbach-Allen, of the coalescing California-Nevada IBLC, for co-organizing these events. And a special thanks to Project NExT for providing space for this event and agreeing to continue to collaborate with us in future years. IBL SIGMAA has also agreed to similarly collaborate with us, so we hope to continue the tradition of these meetups at future JMM and MathFest conferences.
