The Scholarship Symposium no longer needs to justify itself. It has come of age. INTA's decision to encourage academics and students to attend the annual Meeting, and to make it less unaffordable for them to do so, is clearly paying off.

This is the bit of INTA where theory meets practice, where ideals meet reality -- and these are meetings from which we all gain.
