AIRC Board Meeting - Tuesday, August 14th
 
Hello Board Members,
 
Our August board meeting will be at noon next Tuesday, August 14th, at my office due to my immobility and transportation needs (i.e., broken ankle).  My office is Thomas, Head & Greisen, 1400 W Benson Blvd., Suite 400. You can call 272-1571 if you need directions. 
 
Janine and I will send out various reports and the agenda before next Tuesday. Please let me know if you have any special requests or agenda items. 
 
I already let Wells Fargo know we won't use the Museum next week. 
 
Thanks,
 
Debra Mason
