Bernie's Notes

I plan to be at TRB's annual meeting next week in Washington, DC. First, I'd welcome the opportunity to meet you if you'll be attending. Second, as happened previously for TRB, I'd like to know if anyone would be interested in sponsoring my attendance. The approximate cost is $700. In return, you'll be able to have seven days of ads in the TCN, or some other service such as voiceover work, in return for your support. If you'd like to meet or are interested in sponsoring me, please send me an email at Thank you!
