Thirty-four states, the District of Columbia and Canada were represented at POD's Fifth Annual Conference at Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. This introductory sentence should sound vaguely familiar to many of the Quarterly's readers, since it is numerically the same as last years' opening summary report statement. Tennessee and Canada, with 13 participants each, wrested top honors from last year's winner, Texas, which fell from 16 to 9 participants. Other double-digit states were Ohio and Virginia, with 11 each, and California and Illinois, with 10 each.
(Space considerations dictate the inclusion of this abridged version of the 1979 Conference Evaluation Report in the Quarterly. This does not mean, however, that POD is departing from its inclusionary policy. For your very own copy of the complete, unexpurgated, twenty-four-page (single-spaced) report, including seventeen tables and eleven displays, send me a check for $2.50 to cover photocopying and mailing expenses. Checks should be made payable to the Evaluation and Training Institute.)
