Thanks for the SIC information. Amy does not yet have an e-mail address. I
will prompt her to obtain one and will pass on your memo.

It looks like your turning over a lot of receptive stones among teh investor
community to at least advertise the Venture Forum. Any bites yet from
invetsors wanting to attend?

On a separate, but related topic, I was asked to review and comment on your
proposed NRC Congress session on financing. I think the session is clearly
needed and would recommend that you allocate more time for the
investor/speakers to talk about the review/decison making process they use in
deciding whether or not to invest in a company. I think the Congress
audience needs to hear and understand what the financing professional is
looking for when determining whether to make capital avaiable. It's my
perception that there is general ignorance among the recycling community on
this topic and that we could benefit from some schooling in this area. Did
you have any specific investors in mind? Ideally, it seems like folks like
John May or Rick Defeux (sp?) - those who have had some recent and direct
exxposure to recycling companies might be good candidates.

I hope this doesn't sound like I'm butting in on your show. I apologize if
it does.
