One Response to Call for Proposals – MAA 2019

    To whom it may concern,
    I was wondering if you have made a decision on whom would be doing a sessions. I have volunteered to do a session this year in Mackinaw.
    I have not heard anything from you on what you may want me to do, or what subject you may need covered. I have a wide range of subjects and
    Have done sessions last year in Bay City.
    I just want to be timely and orderly in my presentation if you choose me to do a session,

    Thank you,

    Diana Pacella, Washtenaw Community College
