Subject: DPS Mailing #02-13: 2002 DPS MEETING

The news you've all been waiting for...

       |1) CHANGE OF VENUE FOR 2002 DPS MEETING                  |



Due primarily to renovation of the intended meeting facilities, which
would have entailed ongoing construction noise during our meeting, the
DPS has been forced to relocate the fall meeting to an alternate
venue.  The meeting will take place DURING EXACTLY THE SAME WEEK AS
ORIGINALLY PLANNED, 6-11 October 2002, and we are in the final stages
of negotiating a contract to hold the meeting in BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause our
membership. By keeping the dates the same we hope the impact will be
minimal. The good news is that Hunter Waite has agreed to stay on as
chair of the Local Organizing Committee. A web site with more detailed
meeting information will be available soon.
