Hooray for planning

Two years ago, in late March 2011, I gave a talk at the Society for Adolescent Medicine (SAM) in Seattle and flew immediately afterwards to the Society for Research on Child Development (SRCD) in Montreal.  The two conferences were always the same week, often across the country from each other.  SRCD is biannual, and alternates with a similar adolescent-specific conference (Society for Research on Adolescence, SRA.)  This year is no exception: the conferences are the same week in Seattle and Atlanta. 

Just noticed that next year the Society for Adolescent Medicine and Society for Research on Adolescence are still meeting during the same week, but finally holding their conferences in the same city.  It will be the 14th biannual SRA conference --- did it really take them 26 years to figure out this solution?
