The next Seattle SAGE meeting is Thursday, December 12th, 2002 at 7pm.

The UW Rosen/McWilliam Building facility is a secured building. So a
SAGE member will be at the Republican Street entrance until 7:15
P.M. to open the door for meeting attendees.  After that a phone
number will be posted on the door for the SAGE meeting specifically.
There is an "internal extensions only phone" at the Republican Street
entrance to allow you to call building extensions.  The posted phone
number will be monitored until at least 7:45 P.M. However, please make
every effort to arrive by 7 P.M.
