Re: February 13, 2002 DMC Committee Meeting

Just a reminder for the upcoming DMC Committee meeting February 13, 2002, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Resource Center at Drake University, 1213 25th Street, Des Moines, IA 50311. The Resource Center is on 25th Street, just north of University Avenue, next door to the Varsity Theater. Street parking is often available near the Resource Center; otherwise parking is available in the Olmstead Center lot North of University between 28th & 29th Street. It is a gated lot. It will cost approximately $8.00 for the day. Get a receipt - and we'll get you reimbursed. Meals will be brought in for the meeting. I would appreciate if you would please RSVP your attendance to Janet Clayton ( or 515 242-5823).

The two major items of business for the meeting are an update from the DMC Resource Center (National Resource Center for Family Centered Practice), and a discussion regarding the DMC Diversion RFA - we hope to have a draft of that document available by meeting time on Feb 13th.

Minutes from the January 7, 2002 meeting are included as an attachment. Included as well is the website (http// - click on "full study" to access the report) for an article Mike Leiber has recommended we review. He'll discuss the 17-page document at the Feb. 13th meeting.

The agenda is as listed below.

I'm sure for many of you this is a sad day, after-all; the Rams did loose the Super Bowl. Regardless, they'll be back next year.

I'll look forward to seeing all of you Feb. 13th.
