Hi Kim,

I'm interested in the event and also any information about the mobile
initiative for the University.  The email mentioned an attached document
that outlines the mobile initiative....am I missing something?  Can't find
it....will you please let me know if it is available on another site?

Thanks for including me in the listserv about this!
