Subject: [techtrainers] Trainers meeting in Austin


At last, we are planning another  statewide contract trainers meeting at =
ATU
in February!  This meeting will give you the trainers a chance to ask us
questions and express concerns about the training process.  More
importantly, it will give us all a chance to share information, discuss
common technical problems and hopefully, come up with some solutions.
=20
Below, is a draft agenda for a two day meeting.  Please don't hesitate =
to
give us some comments and suggestions for this meeting.  You can either
write to the list, or email me suggestions privately
