Emeriti Breakfast

Friday: 7:15am 8:15am

Dear colleagues! I have been thinking about ways for ACSP old timers (like me) to get together at the ACSP Annual Conference. I suggested that the ACSP arrange an Emeriti Breakfast. I’m definitely not thinking of having a formal program or speaker(s), just providing a time and place for us to get together. Please email if you’re interested in participating in this special breakfast at the Denver conference. There is no cost to attend. I’d also appreciate any other ideas you may have on ways for us to get together during the conference or communicate throughout the year.  ~  Sincerely, Dick Klosterman
