First announcement and Call for Presentations

The fourth North American Stata Users Group meeting will be

Longwood Galleria Conference Center.

The first day of the meeting, which will showcase user
presentations, is being organized by a committee chaired by
Rich Goldstein, consultant (richgold@ix.netcom.com).  The
second day is being organized by StataCorp; there will

and Grumbles session where users make comments and
suggestions to Stata Corp.
