Invitation to co-chair "Issues in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations" topic at ASHA 2014
The 2014 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association convention will be held in Orlando, Florida in 20-22 November 2014. Typically this conference is attended by over 12,000 speech-language pathologists from around the world. Professor Lynn Williams, the co-chair for the 2014 convention has invited Brian Goldstein and myself to be topic chairs for the Issues in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations topic. What an honour! We have said yes, so now the work begins. The first meeting is in September (even before the 2013 convention has been held). We need to assign a committee, invite key speakers, review abstracts, and plan a program of workshops, presentations, and posters.
