Members and Friends of AJB30,
As we get ready to head for Washington, D.C. in a few weeks for the
Annual Meeting - please let me know your thoughts about having our
Mid-Year Meeting in Seattle from July 19th through the 21st. Tom
Palmerlee is in final negotiations for the summer venues and this ones
sounds really good to me (and yes, it is near blizzard conditions here
in Albany, New York) - According to Tom's recent email, the summer
meeting will stress time for flexible committee meetings with less
emphasis on sessions. I think our Committee should take this
opportunity to really get to know the urban data issues facing other
Committees - and be ready to help with the data challenges ahead!!
(this should help us make the case for why data programs need $$$
--after all - data is a critical component of any infrastructure
spending!!!) - Thanks in advance for any input for our summer meeting -
and have a wonderful Holiday!

Great idea. By then our foot of snow ought to be gone. Meanwhile, I will
continue to miss DC in January (replaced by Palm Springs). Ken
