Dear ERT Member & Associates,

Herein please find our schedule of speakers for the balance of this month. We appreciate those who make a special effort to join us each Wednesday Morning for our executive briefings. Weve certainly learned quite a bit during the last year.

We held our annual speakers reception April 9th and for those who attended it was a tremendous success. We feel especially indebted to John & Eileen Morrissey who hosted our event in the most gracious manner. John & Eileen thank you.

The Committee to find a New Program Chair is in the process of formation should this interest you, please let us know. May 13, 1997
