TOPIC STARTER
Event cancelled Jul 30, 2006

I have just been notified by MATI this event has been cancelled "due to the fact that unexpected severe Amtrak train travel delays will not permit the guest speaker to arrive in Chicago until well over the scheduled finishing time for the session".

I will post again if the event is rescheduled.
