RE: [Histonet] Histonet and NSH Conventions

From:"Pamela Marcum"

Since several people have made suggestions and most are very good (I like
this one) it may be time to ask NSH.  We have tables for a number of special
groups in the registration area and the biggest problem would be getting
volunteers for the table at peak times or having a board where people could
not only meet with fellow Histonetters but leave messages to help get
together at specific times.  This is really up to NSH as an organization.
It is really nice to meet the people you talk and see on line in person.

Thanks,

Pam Marcum
