    The itinerary had now been finalized for our meeting this week!  Please take a look at the document available at this link.  We have decided to not use Guidebook as in past meetings due to a pricing change by them. 

    This meeting is full of interesting and diverse presentations and side activities, and our host committee has been hard at work to ensure that everyone has a great experience.  Safe travels and we'll see you Thursday!

    With sadness I am relaying the news of the passing of Dr. Robert Schoenfeld last month, at his retirement home in Vancouver WA.  Bob was an instrumental figure in the foundation of S.A.T., and he served as treasurer for over 10 years.  It is largely through his leadership that S.A.T. is in the successful financial position that it is today.  Many of us in the organization who had the pleasure to know Bob and work with him will never forget his warm smile and good nature.  A card and note of sympathy was sent to Bob's widow on behalf of the membership.
