Brian Goldstein and I have just completed the task of accepting and rejecting submissions to the Cultural and Linguistic Considerations Across the Discipline committee for the upcoming American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention. Each of the 154 submissions was reviewed by 3-4 committee members, and their reviews and comments provided valuable guidance for the acceptance process. We now have 44 hours of oral presentations (2-hour, 1-hour, and 30-minute sessions) plus 81 posters that have been accepted for presentation. The authors should find out about their papers in the next month or so. Many great sessions have been accepted - and I am looking forward to attending as many as I can in November.
