IPI Members:

As discussed at the December IPI Committee meeting, we will be providing 
an SGML and TIM/TEDD introduction tutorial in conjuction with the 
February IPI meeting. We feel that it is important to target individuals 
and companies that would benefit by participating on the IPI committee 
but do not fully understand how it will benefit them. Many of you have 
expressed ideas about who to invite and we would like to capture those 

Please consider individuals within your own company as well as customers 
or manufacturers that you work with who you feel should receive an 
invitation. Please provide contact information (at least a name and 
address, but phone, fax, and email is also helpful) for the individuals 
or companies you feel should receive an invitation.

Please reply to Tonua Brown ( AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
