A Very Big CSA Conference

Hello, SANET!

As a few of you may have noticed, I've been offline since last fall.  I am
now slowly clawing my way through 1,651 backlogged messages and thought I'd
add to the mayhem with the attached tidbit.  Since last anyone read from me,
I've become the Director of CSA Programs for Just Food, one of the
conference conveners.  Contact me or Elizabeth Keen (csana@bcn.net) if you
have any questions.
