With the new year, comes a new conference, and we are busy working to make this year’s program even better. We’ve even launched a new website at www.ocd2013.org to keep you up-to-date on conference information as it becomes available.
This year’s conference will be our 20th annual OCD Conference, and will take place from July 19–21 in Atlanta, GA, our first time in Atlanta in nearly a decade. Of course, the real reason to attend the conference is the quality workshops, support groups, research posters, and evening activities that we provide each and every year. If you would like to submit a proposal to speak at the conference, run a support group, exhibit a research poster, or hold a special evening activity, the conference proposal system is now open!

In this post, our executive director, Dr. Jeff Szymanski, shares some of his own memories and thoughts about the conference.
