Hi everyone,

Kate Davidson and I want to welcome everyone who is attending the GSA annual meeting, which begins this coming weekend.  We have a good number of sessions examining different aspects of men's lives.  Below is an listing of some of the session; we were also able to get this info to the GSA staff in time for them to include the four-page summary in everyone's the registration packet.

I encourage you to try to make the Interest Group meeting Saturday evening -- 5:30 to 7:00 pm in Grand Ballroom IV.  We will have a wine & cheese reception before the "business meeting."

See you soon,
Ed
