Anyone that is interested is invited to come to the meeting.  Please 
arrive on time in order to get into the meeting as we will be viewing the 
exhibit before the museum opens and latecomers will not be able to get in. 
We will meet starting at 9:15am in the National Museum of Natural 
History's Constitution Avenue entrance lobby.  This is NOT the Mall side 
entrance with the large African elephant.

This message has been cross-posted to all the PCA discussion lists.
