WHEN: There is a social time from 6:30 to 7:15, a *brief* business meeting and then the program starts at 7:30PM. Please come early to get a seat. (Come up to the second floor at Borders)

This month, our speaker is Bud Hamilton, an assistant professor of strategic management at Georgia State and a Year 2000 consultant. Bud is an entertaining and lively speaker. His purpose is to cut through some of the hype surrounding the Year 2000 computer problem, and to help businesses and people evaluate their areas of risk. He has no religious or political agenda - this is a discussion of the technical side of the problem, and contingency planning techniques that all businesses need to be putting into place.

I hope to see you there. Feel free to invite your friends. Sincerely,

Carolyn Hoagland VP of operations, SERIS

P.S. SERIS is a non-profit group and always in need of people to help with all kinds of little tasks. You can come and listen to Bud for Free. If you want to join, its $30 a year and a bargain for all the fun Internet info and product give aways at the monthly meetings. We always talk about the Internet, rarely about Y2K.

Carolyn- I'll do my best to be there, in an editorial capcity. Could we talk privately about this? E-mail me at scojo@yahoo.com, or leave a voice mail message at 213-314-2279 ... thanks, scott johnson

As I read your notice, the speaker's main focus wiill be on business solutions.

Does he intend to discuss possible infrastructure problems in a densely populated metropolitan area? Should Atlanta experience extended periods where electricity, water and food are unavailable, "business solutions" may become irrelevant.

My interest is fairly direct, since this is where I live.

Bud lives here in Atlanta -or near here I think. The focus of his topic is on business preparations. There will be a question and answer period afterward. Feel free to come and ask him about his own plans...
