Workshop Update



When is it: Friday, November 10th (starting at 12:30 p.m.) and Saturday, November 11th (all day)

Where is it: Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock, Texas

What is the topic: Best Practices in Academic Support

Who should attend: Anyone who is concerned about best practices in our field - and who is not! You do not have to be from the Southwest region to attend. Maximum number who may attend: 70.

Can you tell me more about being a presenter or topics as a participant: A wide range of sub-topics is under consideration. More information for potential presenters and participants will be available next week. In addition to several large group panel or speaker presentations, there will be opportunities for concurrent small group workshops.

How much will this cost me: The registration fee is expected to be $50 and will include lunch and dinner on Friday and a light breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday. All materials for the workshop will also be included in the registration fee. Registrants will pay for their own travel and lodging.

How do I get to Lubbock: The closest airport is Lubbock International Airport (LBB) 20 minutes northeast of Texas Tech University School of Law. Southwest, American, and Continental airlines have flights that connect through Dallas, Houston, and other cities.

Where will I stay: A block of rooms has been reserved at two hotels near the campus for the nights of Thursday, November 9th through Saturday, November 11th. You must reserve your room before October 31st to receive the workshop rate. You may reserve rooms by contacting the following hotels:

Hawthorne Suites: (806) 765-8900; queen rooms are $85 per night and king rooms are $105 per night; the conference rate code is "LSAC"

Lubbock Inn: (800) 545-8226; rooms with 2 double beds or king rooms are available for $65; the conference rate code is "LSAC, #G00022-04"

Why should I stay through Saturday night: Because you are going to be treated to real West Texas hospitality with a barbecue dinner at the National Ranching Heritage Center. If you want an excuse to wear your jeans, cowboy (or cowgirl) boots, and Stetson, this is it! Entertainment is in the works! So, y'all stay for the night and have a real good time.

What if I am eager and cannot wait to register: Hold on, Pardner. Reserve your room and your flight now. On-line registration for the conference should be fenced off on our web pages next week. More information will also be on the ASP listserv and ASP Blog next week.

Who is the ranch foreman for this workshop: Dr. Amy L. Jarmon, Assistant Dean for Academic Success Programs, Texas Tech University School of Law, (806) 742-3990, ext. 294,

As Roy Rogers used to say, "Happy trails to you, until we meet again."
