Additional info from Nadine Lymn:

It was a fun afternoon and your group was very energizing, which always makes a tremendous difference!   Please do feel free to use my powerpoint presentations; they are not already posted elsewhere.  I know there was a lot of interest in gaining access to the expensive publications that Adrienne mentioned in her talk; the link to ESA’s free Policy News (the content of which is largely drawn from those subscriptions) should be in the handouts, but just in case, the link is:  http://www.esa.org/pao/policy_news.php

Folks can receive Policy News automatically by email, by sending an e-mail to listserv@listserv.umd.edu with the following in the body of the message: sub ESANEWS {your first and last name} It was a pleasure meeting you and the Fellows, thanks again for the opportunity.
