Hi Amy Jo,

I'll be at the SfN meeting on Saturday through Monday, leaving Tuesday
morning. 3 comments/questions related to that:

   - If you're still looking for members to staff the booth, I'm happy to
   - I you're still looking for members to help with informal booth
   conversations, I'm happy to help. I'd be willing to talk with folks about
   engaging undergraduates in research and/or what jobs are like and how to
   prepare for or land jobs at a PUI.
   - When is the abstract deadline for the FUN poster session?

Thanks so much!  -Shara
