Still room for the NY ASP Workshop in April

The following is a recent listserv posting from Kris Franklin about the upcoming ASP Workshop (modified because of format problems - still not perfect):

Dear Friends,

A tentative agenda for this year’s NY Academic Support Workshop, to be held at Brooklyn Law school from 9:30-5 on Friday April 1, as pasted on below.  There may still be room for one or two agenda items, and there’s definitely room for folks to join in the conversation even if not leading a discussion.  If you’d like to come for even part of the day, please email me at or Linda Feldman at

.  If I’ve left anyone off who has already rsvp’d, my apologies (just let us know and we’ll make the needed corrections).

Workshop participants, if you have materials to share, please send them to Linda as soon as possible so that we can bind them and make copies available to everyone who is coming.  We’re so looking forward to seeing you all, and to what looks like a comprehensive and exciting event.
