Hi Howard,

Would there be an opportunity to schedule these round tables so they're not
concurrent with standard presentations? I know you have a pretty tight
schedule during luncheons, but maybe birds of a feather could sit together
and talk shop before the regularly scheduled programming begins? I'm just
thinking since AHG is always packed with high quality, informative sessions,
a lot of folks (myself included) might choose not to skip a presentation
