Topic: Please make sure you REGISTER!
Comments: I have learned how very important it is for each person that intends to attend any events at the ACR 2007 to send in the Registration Form and the Registration Fee. There are many expenses involved with putting on an event of this magnitude and your support is very much needed.
    IMPORTANT! Please do not consider this Registration process as "optional". The committee depends on your personal integrity to REGISTER and send in the supporting REGISTRATION FEE if you plan to participate in any part of the event. Please be one of the active registrants for this wonderful event they are planning (if you intend to participate in any way). Thanks!
