Got this from Brigitte. Please respond if interested. If we could get Harrell out from LA it would only take him about 37 days on horseback. One can always hope. Here is Brigitte’s request:
Somehow, I ended up on the planning committee for next year’s NYSAFLT conference in Saratoga, NY. The fact that my department head will be chairing it might have had something to do with it. Anyway, since I’m a new member, I essentially just have to sit and listen. However, I was given the task of finding willing (and able) presenters for German, especially somebody who might be able to speak about the new German AP exam. It was also mentioned during the meeting this past Saturday that TPRS should be given a platform as it is becoming “more and more important”! They had a TPRS strand at the last conference in Rochester but are not sure if they want to do that again. So, that’s not a definite “no”, right? Anyway, in terms of finding somebody who can give a presentation on AP German, I was wondering if there was anybody on your blog who might either be interested themselves or steer me in the right direction. The reason I am checking with you first (and not AATG) is that I am hoping to find somebody who can do both (talk about AP in a TPRS context). Obviously, I have a hidden agenda here but they don’t have to know that.
Thanks so much in advance,

Contact me off-blog and we’ll see what is possible. Send an e-mall to harrellrl at aol dot com – sorry, I have gotten used to not giving my address in a way that a “bot” can read it.
We might be able to work something out.
Julie Baird and Rob Williams….AP and TPRSers. I can forward you their information Brigitte. I hope that we can repeat the TPRS strand again next year….it was a very positive experience. I’m glad to hear that NYSAFLT sees us as “going in a direction” :o) It’s been a decade-long journey.
Thank you so much, Laurie and Robert. Yes, I would very much like to get Julie and Rob’s information to forward to my chairman. Btw, Laurie, your name came up quite a few times. Obviously, you already left your footprint in the minds of the organizers. Wie sagt man so schön auf Deutsch: steter Tropfen höhlt den Stein! (the squeaky wheel gets the oil).
Laurie, I guess it would have helped to give you my e-mail address. Here it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for offering your assistance.
