I am writing to invite all the dc.story readers, lurkers, posters, and aficionados to a series of programs that will address "The District of Columbia in Crisis: Where Do We Go From Here?" The series is sponsored by the D.C. Affairs Section of the District of Columbia Bar.

The first in the series is a breakfast program that will take place on Friday, May 31, 1996 at the D.C. Bar Conference Center from 8-10 a.m. The program will feature Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, who will address the possibility of a flat tax, the role of the Financial Control Board, retrocession, her legislative priorities for the coming year and a host of other topics.

The second program will take place on June 11, 1996 at the D.C. Bar Conference Center from 8-10 a.m. Congressman Thomas M. Davis, III (R-VA), Chair of the D.C. Subcommittee of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee will share his views on the District's crisis, the role of the D.C. Subcommittee, and his legislative priorities for the coming year.

The third program will be a brown bag lunch from noon to 2:00 p.m. on July 16, 1996 at the D.C. Bar Conference Center. The program will address the media coverage of District's crisis.
