CFA LEGISLATIVE WORKSHOPS RESCHEDULED

The CFA legislative workshops scheduled for November 2nd in the South, and
November 9th in the North, have been incorporated into the CFA Political
and Legislative workshop to be held at this year's Delegate Assembly on
Saturday, October 20th from 9 am - 12 noon at the Crowne Plaza hotel near
the Los Angeles airport. Chairperson Eloise McQuown made the change in
response to people's travel concerns and the faculty's current focus on the
Teach-Ins beginning October 16th. If you are unable to attend this meeting,
forward your suggested legislative proposals to CFA at
