Good Afternoon All,
Today I had a terrific meeting with the team from the Museum of Tolerance (MOT) regarding the Cultural Proficiency Conference Scheduled for Sunday, January 30, 2022 (I will email you all the notes etc.).  Having said that, to help with the preparation of the conference pamphlet, I will need a brief description of the history of ACSA and particularly ACSA Region 16 (only about 1/2 a page for each).  Is this something that any of you can provide and if so, would you be able to get it to me by Monday, December 13th?  Or is this something that the ACSA Historian would provide?  

Also, the MOT through their grant is providing the lunch and morning coffee as well as coffee in the afternoon but, I am wondering (really hoping) that we can provide for a small breakfast (muffins, juice, fruit) in the morning to accompany the coffee provided (please let me know your thoughts).

Thank you,

Ms. Simone Charles
