We are pleased to announce that the United States Conference of Mayors and USFilter will provide you the opportunity to tape a message for our web site during the 71st Winter Meeting in Washington, DC January 22-24, 2003.

One of the most popular pages of the Conference's award-winning web site, usmayors.org, is our "Meet the Mayors" program, sponsored by USFilter. On the site, you are given the opportunity to tape a video message about you and your city that is available to the thousands of users of usmayors.org. This year's theme will be "What inspired you to pursue public service and how would you inspire others?" Please come prepared to videotape a one-minute segment with this important theme. Specifically, we encourage you to draw upon an anecdote or two that shaped the reason you decided to serve the public and how do you use these experiences to inspire others to serve as well.

There will be two taping sessions during the 71st Winter Meeting: Wednesday, January 22 and Thursday, January 23, both from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Capital Hilton Hotel. Please don't miss this opportunity to give your city important exposure to the users of the usmayors.org.

You may arrange for your taping, which will only take 5-10 minutes, by going to the usmayors.org booth located in the main lobby of the hotel. A representative of the Conference and USFilter will then escort you to the taping room or schedule an appropriate time for your taping.

If you have any questions, please call James Welfley at 202-861-6796.

On behalf of the "Meet the Mayors" program and its sponsor USFilter, we are pleased to provide you this opportunity to promote your city during the 71st Winter Meeting in Washington, DC and throughout the coming year.

We look forward to seeing you in our nation's capital!
