Vendor -- We had one vendor in attendance at the meeting: Academx Publishing. They publish books for teachers/professors, at a very reasonable price. If you ever considered publishing your own labs, worksheets, or handouts for use in your classroom, this is an interesting alternative to textbooks. Info below:
