"Maybe we should conduct a survey of network members to help determine where the next Conversation should be held. Some questions about format might be asked, also. Some may need the event to have certain features for academic credit. That would…"

A few final words from the MFP fans in Boston Oct. 21, 2011

MFP Conference participants saying goodbye to each other and hello to you all of the network: What a stimulating event! Parting is sweet sorrow? I'm sad it's over. We look forward to expanding the circle. Breathless awaiting the notes! See you for the next conversation in France (either Rouen or Caen).  See More
