    I sent the following message to Mike Nelson, but received an auto reply that he is unavailable for July. Is there anyone at SRERA who might be able to assist me?

    Dear Mike,
    I am contacting you as the current president of the Louisiana Educational Research Association. I am trying to figure out the process to schedule and send our top state papers to you for presentation at AERA 2017 in San Antonio.

    Let me know if you can help or who I should contact within SRERA.
    Michelle Morris
