Chair: Jim Whitely
Location: Shaan Restaurant, NYC
Speaker: Roger Shields, Chief Economist at MBIA
The luncheon went well. We had 24 paying guests, 25 in attendance (Phil Sherman came for a drink but didn't stay for lunch), 2 no-shows, and one who sent in a check for two but told us he wasn't coming (so I see that as a donation).
I gave messages from those of you, and others, who couldn't make it. We had a moment of silence for Bill Kirk, and as always, Roger was in rare form.
Shaan, as usual did a good job,and no one went away hungry.
