Hi All,

Sorry for the long delay and short notice of this email.  By now everyone should have received their stack of books.  Please communicate with Neal or me if you are experiencing any problems or have questions.

We will meet on Sunday at Midwinter.  Please let me know if you will be there in person.  Once I arrive in Atlanta I will check out the situation for wifi, probably Saturday morning.  If we are going to have access to wifi I will send out information regarding attending the meeting electronically.

Please respond whether you will attend or not as it will make a difference with the content of the agenda.

Thank you,

Annemarie
