Hello, UA colleagues:

Would anyone like to deliver a Universal Acceptance presentation to the 
43rd Internationalisation and Unicode Conference (IUC43) in Santa Clara, 
California, USA in October?

I think this is a good venue for our message: the audience is not large, 
but they tend to be key architects of the technologies which make UA 
possible. They are technologists committed to cultural openness, and 
they are already completely sympathetic to UA's goals. They still need 
to hear what the UA issues and obstacles are, and what they can do to 
help. I have presented there for many years, and on UA for the last 
couple of years. However, I am travelling this year and won't be able to 

I would love it if someone else would step in to fill the gap. Their 
call for proposals is open now, until Friday 15. March 2019 (just 
extended). There's no guarantee that any proposal will be accepted, of 
course, but it would be a pity if no UA presentation were even proposed.

I'm happy to offer advice and coaching to anyone who wants to propose. 
For more information, see the message below, or read 

Best regards,
       —Jim DeLaHunt, Vancouver, Canada
