Hi. I also noticed the same thing at the NOBE meetings, though there are a 
few people who teach at the college level who do attend. I am a disability 
services director at a private liberal arts university, but also am an 
adjunct  instructor there. There are certainly issues unique to working in a 
higher ed academic setting. I'm still making a final decision about Dallas, 
but will look up your gathering if I am there.
