The schedule is highly flexible, however, and can easily be adjusted to suit your convenience. Should you wish to bring anyone from the Agency along with you, they would be most welcome and your entire party would, of course, be our guests. All others at the meeting will be CIRA members, about 400-500,.?of whom are likely to attend. The only publicity associated with the meeting will be our direct mailings to CIRA members. All of us are loolcln? forward eagerly to meeting and getting to know you and certainly hope you can work our 'Luncheon into your very busy schedule.
