Help make the NASW Science in Society meeting a success — host a network table. All you need is a topic — any topic from "Interviewing Tricks and Tips" to "Making an Office Out of a Closet" to "Covering Volcanic Research." You need not be an expert on this topic. You just have to be willing to kick off the informal discussion at a table with other interested members during lunch on Friday, October 27.

President Joe Palca opened the meeting by calling on Treasurer Deborah Blum to present some good news. Deborah reported that the organization had a budget surplus of $20,032 in 1999. Total funds, including operating budget, checking account, money market and CDs, totaled $216,792; half of which is now held in cash reserve. This is quite a difference from the days when NASW typically operated at a deficit.
