Unigroup's February 2002 Meeting Announcement


NOTICE: All attendees who have successfully RSVP'd by 21-FEB-2002 02:00 should have already received an "RSVP-ACK" EMail. If you did NOT receive this email, you are probably NOT registered and you won't be able to get past security. RSVP deadline was 20-FEB-2002 08:00AM. There were a bunch of people who registered AFTER the deadline. Those names were sent into Enterasys and should all have been submitted to building security.

Marlene Sorvillo (receptionist) will be in the in the lobby until 6:30pm to catch anyone who may not be on the list. If you did NOT receive an RSVP-ACK, you should try to meet Marlene BEFORE 6:30pm, but there still are no guarantees.
