Just received a spring schedule from UMFK, listing their spring line  
up of community presentations.  One, on Local Food Networks: Food  
Localization as a Sustainability Strategy, is being offered as a  
teleconference program with University of Wisconsin Extension  
interactive Web program. I will attend and send along my opinions.  
This is something (with different topics, of course) that I suggested  
GNSI do in the future. It can open conference programs to many more  
people than are physically able to attend conferences. Not a  
replacement, an adjunct.  (I suggested it for this year but guessed  
that there is no time, interest, or  budget to plan it with another  
chapter.)   Joan
