I will be at meetings 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 10.

I would be happy to report to either the board, the membership, or both 
regarding all of these.

Regarding Terry's room, Loraine is working on finding him other 
accommodations as Mrs. Jernigan first wanted my room and told me the 
national office would find Terry a room and then she canceled my reservation 
because it is not what she wanted.

The point is that Terry will have a room one way or another.

Sorry I didn't have time to call you back. School is really crazy right now 
and I will be free to talk with you some time next week if needed.

Hope this information helps.
