Hello everyone,

Due to an oversight on my part, my recently mailed reminder concerning this Saturday's Student Seminar 
did not include the agenda.  Since I sent the reminder to a large list, I don't feel comfortable 
following up that reminder with another message, so I am asking that anyone who knows of someone who 
should see this agenda help us out by forwarding it.  The agenda is attached as a Microsoft Word 
for easy printing and it is also included in the text below.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson
