When Darcie asked about the content I planned to use in our presentation, my first thought was, “It would take a book.”
And so, now there is a manuscript, which is on its way to becoming a book. (I am working with a publisher to have the book ready for the March 2020 NPE conference. More details to come.)
As to the fiscal logistics of my presence at the conference:
NPE will help partially fund my attendance (one night at the hotel and a $30-reduced rate for conference fee).
In this birthday fundraiser, I am asking for assistance with airfare and airport parking, which will come to approximately $600 (including GoFundMe fees).
Assistance with airfare and airport parking will leave me paying for one night in the hotel (approx. $200) and the remaining $130 for the conference fee.
I thank you for considering this request. Most of my research and writing is available to the public for free on my blog, which I am happy to offer. If you have found my work helpful and are both willing and able to support me in this fundraiser, I sincerely appreciate it.
