- From the Dupont Forum listserv on Yahoo! Groups: “Please see the attached invitation for a reception at Policy Restaurant on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. This is a reception for DCCA members and potential members to meet and discuss issues related to the organization with the candidates who were selected by the 2009 Nominating Committee. I was not able to contact the entire slate of candidates, but do hope you will all make a special effort to attend. With the election so close, and this event one week away, we would greatly appreciate if you would forwarding this e-vite to any DCCA members, potential members and/or friends of DCCA, as you see fit. Since this is a private event, we cannot use the DCCA membership roster, so are relying on your help to get the word out for a good turnout. Any guest(s) you invite may simply RSVP to this e-mail address, which is also printed on the card. Please ask that they include the name of the person who invited them when responding. Many Thanks and Hope to See You There! – Ron Clayton”
