Paul,  Can you explain a little more of what this pitch is about ???
Is it just a sales pitch for why everyone should be an SA member ???
Is there some new benefits or information that they are looking to share ???
Is it something of interest to document editors only ???
Could they just provide a PowerPoint pitch, that we could email to everybody
Trying to squeeze in a lunch time presentation will not be easy since some
WG will have to agree to vacate their room in time to do the set-ups, and
many group need the flexibility to break when they reach a logical stopping
If we knew the topic better and could estimate the probable
attendance/interest we can probably find a workable slot for it, but right
now I don't have a clue what is actually needed.  An abstract/agenda would
be a great idea.

Thanx,  Buzz

OK--no Thursday night.  However, I don't want to delay to July.  How about a
45 minute lunchtime presentation Tuesday or Wednesday 12:15pm-1pm?  Those
that are interested can grab a sandwich and participate during lunch.
