[FUN_Mail] FUN Poster session is full

Dear Amy Jo - 

Let me begin by saying that I’m writing with a totally unreasonable and unfair request.  While I know the FUN poster session is full, I’d like an exception to be made for my research group - for a single poster.  

If you need an excuse, here it is: I didn’t push the lab to register when the email came out about 75 slots remaining and was diagnosed with brain tumors shortly thereafter.  Life has gotten really busy with other things and I dropped the ball on the student research.  

The full lab is planning to come to SFN but we’d love to participate with the FUN workshop and give the students an opportunity to present our data.  This is likely my last SFN (which can be viewed a lot of ways ;) ) but I’m kicking myself for potentially compromising the students’ development.

If an accommodation can be made for us and the students are allowed to present at the FUN session, please let me know what we need to do in terms of registration and next steps.  

If you’re not the appropriate person for this request, please let me know who is and I’ll send it on to them.  

Thanks so much.  Sincerely -
