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.
=3D20
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
