Good Afternoon All,

We have had some speaker changes on our October program due to scheduling 
issues.  The changes are on the program at our web site www.pahisto.org and 
will be listed here for all who have received a short program form by fax 
or e-mail.  We also have changes on the registration form as we 
accidentally placed workshops 13, (The Bog People of Norhtern Europe) 14, 
Grossing Surgical Specimens, A Histologist View), and 15 (Wet Workshop: 
Multiple Antigen  IHC Staining  - This is also a day and time change from 
Saturday to Friday afternoon).  If you wanted to take these workshops and 
have registered or were planning to take them please review the corrected 
registration sheet and contact either Gloria Limetti or me for changes.

We are sorry about these changes however, schedules were beyond our control 
and the others are just reaching a point in reviewing the program that you 
see what you think should be there not what is written.  We ran out of 
volunteers (like they had a choice) to edit and proof read before we had 
these corrections.

Please Accept Our Apologies For Any Inconvience and Let Know If You See 
Anything Else!
