        -some additional data needs to be included (such as
         completion of Installation workbook)
        -project plan tasks need to be assigned to individuals

    -Apriori's visit:
        - Three things need to be complete before Apriori's visit:
            1.) define host users
            2.) discuss/define client data
            3.) define index structure
        - Are we ready for Apriori's arrival?

    - Steering Committee Report:
        -They would like a Demo by the end of the academic year
         (ie 2nd -> 4th week of May)
        -Q: Are we piloting a system for hundreds vs thousands?
         A: hundreds
        -Q: How does Van Pelt House (Al Filrese sp?) support
            fit into this pilot?
         A: Ira has responsibility (to talk to Al F.).  This issue
            is tabled until after Demo.

NEW BUSINESS:
