"We're very positive about our program for 2002, which was formulated by taking into account both the technical and economic needs of our members and sponsors. As a uniquely independent, 'grassroots" user-driven organization, we solicited input from our community of users and sponsors and found that there was overwhelming interest in combining travel budgets and using more creative ways to network and gather information. We believe that our current plans and future activities address these needs and will continue to vitalize our organization in 2002, " says Joel Friedman, HDIA Executive Director.
