Beth, about your call/ imnquiry earlier this week concerning repeat 
requests for
scholarships...... I'd say we best add a statement concerning whetehr or not
they've received a scholarship, as I can see the same people wanting to attend
numerous conferences. Not that they's be excluded if they'd received a
scholarship within the year, but maybe they's have to be on a waiting list to
give others a first chance.  Is that too complex? Maybe we should not worry
about it at all this year, and concentrate keeping it a simple as 
possible this
first time through...... I can see this becoming a new way we do "business"
around conferences and work shops, Allen
