ASP Business Meeting at AALS Update

Here is an update from Herb Ramy on the location for the ASP Business Meeting at AALS:

Regarding the section business meeting, please note that the original AALS Program did not contain a time or room for the event.  The most recent online version of the program lists the Section Business Meeting as occurring on Sunday, January 6, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m. Windsor, Third Floor, Hilton New Orleans Riverside.  This is an hour and 15 minutes after our section program concludes.  Unfortunately, we could not meet immediately after the section program due to a conflict with another event.
