Re: AAPT meeting

Dear David,

I have invariably found AAPT meetings to be highly inspirational. I
have been to a tremendous number of talks that have given me great
ideas for my classes. The only frustration I have experienced at an
AAPT meeting is that there can be two or more interesting talks
scheduled at once! I strongly encourage you to make the trek to
Rochester if you can.
