This will precede the annual Mid-Atlantic States Quality Assurance (QA) Workshop, which will be held at the same hotel from 1:00 pm February 6th to noon on the 8th. It is highly recommended that participants at the SCEF meeting also attend the QA Workshop. Please note that registration is not required for the SCEF meeting, however, it is required for the QA Workshop. Attendees are asked to check the website www.midatlanticqaw.com for details about the Tropicana Hotel and the QA Workshop.

Members with an Internet address will receive these materials electronically. Hard copies will not be mailed to these individuals. Members without an Internet address who have an ‘**’ next to their name will receive a fax of the materials. All recipients of these materials are requested to make the information available as soon as possible to other non-Internet members in their State or Company.

Per previous meeting action items, all States who have not yet returned ballot items for the flux-cored arc regional welding program are asked to bring them to the meeting for discussion (current agenda item #7). Also as follow-up, Expansion Joint subcommittee members are asked to be prepared to provide final comments on drawing details (current agenda item #8).

All subcommittee chairmen are asked to convene their groups prior to the meeting in order to resolve any necessary issues that require reporting to the full membership.

We look forward to another successful turnout and to the active participation of all members at the meeting. Questions or suggestions for additional agenda items may be referred to lou.triandafilou@fhwa.dot.gov or (410) 962-3648.
