Replying to LO13508 --

You can still FAX an application to the May 30 - June 1 Group Relations
Conference at Howard University. The FAX number is: (202) 833 8300 and the
application form is at the end of this message.

The conference already has more than forty-five members and has room for
12 more. Besides an interesting staff composition, this conference has an
eight year history working on the topic of diversity. The effect of this
history on the current conference will be interesting. In addition to the
President of AKRI, the staff includes five current and past center
directors, and five fellows of AKRI. Your can get the bochure from
http://www.johnknight.com/akri/wbc/div97/index.html. Again the
application form suitable for FAXing is at the end of this message.

Given its history and staff composition, this conference offers a unique
opportunity to see the A. K. Rice model at full maturity. In sum, the
staff has almost 200 years of experience in this model. A number of
conference members are repeat participants.

BTW, http://www.human-nature.com/HRAJ/archive.html has articles on Group
Relations theory.
