Luncheons for April, 2011

Special Legislative Report: One Month Left

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

The Texas Legislature continues to wrestle every day with the major issues confronting our state—arming college students, monitoring sonograms, preventing universal suffrage, ignoring structural budget deficits, and on and on. Please join us for this very special presentation by members of our own remarkably sane and rational legislative delegation on what the Session will look like with “one month left.” You’ll get legislative updates, inside information—and probably nightmares—but we guarantee it will be interesting.


Speakers:

Senator Kirk Watson

Representative Donna Howard

Representative Eddie Rodriguez

Super-Spectacular Door Prizes:

1.  Discount coupon for the impending “Back To School Gun Sale” at a major local retailer near you.
2.  Pamphlet:  “How to Use Your Own Sonogram as a Voter I.D.”
3.  Obama 2012 bumper sticker.

4.  Red Wassenich’s Keep Austin Weird.  The next to last copy on Earth.

New Reservation Policy Alert – Please note our new policy on canceling reservations.  As a result of recent last-minute cancellations and no-shows, we will have to start charging for persons who make a reservation but do not attend.  The Forum still has to pay for those lunches, and at times we’ve had to absorb over $150 in costs for non-attendees who made reservations.  If you cancel at least 24 hours before the meeting, there will be no charge.  We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your cooperation.

Cost: lunch is $15.00 for members, $20.00 for non-members

Parking: 816 Congress Avenue/IBC Bank parking garage. Enter the parking garage on 9th Street, between Colorado and Congress. Bring your ticket to the receptionist on the 7th floor and you will be given a coupon to use to exit the garage at no charge.

Reservation required: To reserve your seat, email jerben@herring-irwin.com or cherring@herring-irwin.com or call Chuck Herring or Judy Erben at 320-0665. Please tell us if you intend to bring a non-member guest and if you have any special dietary concerns. PLEASE MAKE RESERVATIONS BY 5:00 P.M. ON MONDAY, APRIL 25. Seating to this event will definitely be limited.

About the Forum: The Forum meets monthly for lunch to hear Democratic speakers. Membership is $120/yr. Non-members may attend, but members have priority and receive discount prices for lunches.
