Chris -- If you can get away this morning, come up to Mare Island Naval 
(March 30) at 9am for a Panel Discussion on: "One Year to Closure: 
Strengthening Partnerships for Worker Transition, Community Services and 
Base Reuse" presented by the Mare Island Academic Labor Management 
Alliance. Presenters from UC Davis, County Social Services, Navy and 
Private Industry Council followed by group discussion on how to leverage 
considerable federal investment in defense worker transition to serve 
hard-hit Vallejo community.

Take I-80 north, across Carquinez Bridge, take 37 east past Marine World 
and enter Mare Island North Gate. Building 755, Mare Island Reemployment 
Center, is right there. Go to Room 221. For more info., call Mike Nolan 

Good luck, Mike
