We have received our booth assignment from AAA
and it is a pretty small table. If you are bringing materials to the booth,
That said, the meeting is only 6 weeks away and I hope
all of you, especially the folks with new LPOs, will be able to bring some

the end of this month I will start filling in the schedule for staffing the
