    Jeannie, I have read many of your articles and attended some of the DUG conventions where you spoke. To get to the point, I am on the NTGPA committee for Luncheon Meetings. We are looking for speakers to provide presentations to our chapter members at the Globe Life Ball Park, in Arlington, where we try to schedule 3 to 4 luncheon meetings per calendar year. If you are interested in presenting at one of our luncheon meetings, please send me your fee and potential topics and dates that you would be available for. Mark Edwards is the chairman of our committee. Please copy Mark on your reply. Thank you.
