    There are many meetings I cannot attend, and I assume the same is true for
many of us. I have a suggestion that seems like it could benefit the hosting
societies as well as broadening the spectrum of those who may benefit from
    Why not video tape the seminars and workshops. The tapes could then be sold
to those who could not attend to view at their leisure. The cost of the tapes
could help defray the cost of the seminars or serve as fund raisers for the
hosting society.
    I, for one, would love to go to the seminar below, but I am sure I
could not
get to Phoenix any time soon. (I'm in Connecticut) Some people may also be able
to convince their employers to loosen the purse strings enough to purchase the
tapes for those who they could not send to the seminars. (Can't leave the place
empty now can we??...yeah, we've all heard that one!)
    I am know watching a videotape is nowhere near the experience of actually
attending the meetings. So, I cannot imagine the availability of tapes
the attendance in a negative way. This should be profitable to all involved.
just something to think about
