    Hi, all,

    Hope you are all staying warm and healthy during these times!

    In preparation for our committee's report for the newsletter, I wondered if any of you have any information or updates you would like to share? I planned on promoting our new Twitter (thanks, Sabine!) and maybe introducing Youngsook and Tylar, including their liaison-approach to the other committees. Is there anything else?

    If you could let me know by Wednesday, I would really appreciate it.

    Many thanks!

    Karna

    That's all I can think of.

     

    Thanks, Karna!

    Hi, all,

     

    Hope everyone is well!

     

    I was wondering if we should consider postponing the newsletter? Everyone seems to be scrambling right now and it might lighten the load a bit. Thoughts? Trent, what do you think in particular?

     

    Many thanks,

     

    Karna

    Hi,

     

    I'm fine either way.  It's something that's done completely virtually so I don't see it as much of an issue.  I now have even more time to work on it.  I'm still getting committee reports coming in.  It just might be a smaller newsletter.  It might be nice to hear from Ericka in all of this.

     

    I don't want to burden committee chairs so in Monday's reminder email I'd stress that a report is optional.  But a committee report is usually just a small paragraph so I don't think it's asking too much. 

     

    I'm open to other suggestions though.  Thoughts?

    Trent

    Hi Trent:

    I need some time to send my report for the newsletter.

    I am overwhelmed with the Coronavirus crisis in NYC and preparing for online teaching.


    Respectfully,
    Becky

    Hi Becky,

     

    You don't have to submit anything, especially with all that's going on.  It's not required so don't feel obligated, but if you want to add something to the newsletter, I'm going to start putting it together on April 5. 

     

    Thanks and stay safe,

    Trent

    Hi Karna,

    Nothing else to add. Hectic at home and at work. I just transitioned to teaching online and it has been busy. Stay safe and take care everyone. 

    Thanks,
    Sabine

    Hi, all,

     

    Becky, I've been thinking that you should be excused from copy editing this newsletter. Trent and I can handle that. Does that sound alright, Trent?

     

    Also, all of you should feel free to take it easy with this committee. I understand that disseminating information in a timely manner is important, but I think everyone is more concerned with public health information at this time. Let me know if there is anyway I can lighten your loads during this stressful time, and take care and stay well!

     

    Trent, I'll send you a short paragraph this weekend or so, and will be ready in April to help copy edit. Thanks for your dedication, everyone!

     

    Karna

    Sounds like a plan.  Thanks, Karna!
