Hey Everyone-

Just a reminder that MSFC's lobbying training is also on Monday.  So if you
are interested in both events send Josh an e-mail that you want to go to
Chicago, then come to my thing : )  Pro-choice resources will be helping us
provide lunch and Robynne Curlee, who will be doing the training was on my
frisbee team last summer (translation: she's cool as hell) Anyway, please
let me know if you plan on coming so I can change the room reservations and
get food appropriately.  First-years are especially encouraged to come
because they will get to use this info a little bit longer.

Thanks, 
Amy

PS Josh, I might like to go to Chicago if there's enough room for me : )
