[Caveat - Google's spiders have not searched through all the links to all of the Power Point slides. These results are only  partial. For example, type in Morning Session  and as of 7/16/07 you only see the Agendas for 13 meetings. Google has not yet found  the meetings of  3/6/07,  12/8/04,  4/29/03, 1/14/03, 10/8/02 and 4/17/01. Some earlier links to meetings in 2001 and 2002 are to the PTO site and thus no slides are here]
