ABJ30 Members and Friends,
Below is the revised agenda for our Summer Mid-year meeting in WDC - we will have a
special guest speaker: Burton H. Reist, Chief 2020 Research and Planning Office - he will
be informing us on current plans for the 2020 Census - it should be a very informative
talk. We will also be discussing MAP-21 impacts, the emerging transportation and the
extreme weather situation, and what data decision-makers need. We plan to use gotomeeting
and will have a phone number for members and friends to call in. Looking forward to
seeing all of you in WDC at our meeting - or hearing from you on the phone!
