We still need a few more panel moderators for the UWP (University Writing Program at the University of Florida) annual conference, "Pedagogy, Practice, and Philosophy." It's on Saturday, January 30th.
Anybody interested? It's a good CV line and should be a fun conference to attend anyway. You can moderate a panel even if you're presenting on a different panel, obviously.
I've pasted the tentative schedule below this email. So just let me know if you want to do it and which panel you're interested in moderating--or if you're not particular and are willing to moderate any one of them.
I know it's kind of short notice, but if you think it's something you're willing to do, could you please let me know?
Thanks a million and best,

Subject: RE: Email I sent earlier
You'll need to send me a plaintext copy of the listserv message you want sent out.
Please make sure that the text clearly identifies what UF unit is involved in the announcement -- no acronyms only, which our students may not recognize.
Also, please remember that we can't send attachments over the listserv, as we can't guarantee delivery -- anti-virus and anti-spam software sometimes suspects it as a threat and either refuse to deliver it or relegate it to junk mail.

I meant to send an email to the UF grad student list serv, but it seems like it was only sent to you.
How do I make sure it was sent to everyone on the list serv?
