From: Lori Leininger, PANDA (Physical and Neurological Disabilities Assistance) Coordinator
You are invited to participate in a one-time advisory committee this fall to provide input on the Learnerís with Disabilities Resource Guide. As ABE Professionals you will have an opportunity to communicate your expertise, experiences and insights to update the content and format of the resource guide. The Learners with Disabilities Resource Guide is being updated with funds through the Minnesota Department of Education Adult Basic Education PANDA Grant and will be available online at the completion of the project. Dr. Barry Shaffer has asked me to facilitate this project.
We are looking for ABE professionals to attend an all day meeting. If you contributed to the first resource guide, have expertise or knowledge in the area of disabilities, have used the guide or are just interested in the project, we would appreciate your input. Call or email if you can attend the meeting or need more information. If you are unable to attend, we welcome your input by email or phone.
The advisory committee will meet on Thursday, November 15, 2007 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at Winnetka Learning Center, 7940 55th Ave North in New Hope, 55428. Lodging and mileage will be reimbursed for members traveling more than 50 miles. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Five CEUís will be provided for participation on the committee.
Please distribute this professional opportunity to your staff. Contact me by October 23, 2007 by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 763-520-0554 or 763-504-4093 if interested.
