2004 (Anaheim, CA) IAL


Every year at the IAL Annual Meeting we hold a WebWhispers Banquet. Those who attend this dinner are also invited to a Cocktail Reception held just prior to the banquet.


We are pleased to announce that the Cocktail Reception is again hosted by Bruce Medical and we appreciate the generosity of Richard Najarian for this fifth year that he has supported our celebration.


Our dinner cost has been going up each year and it was necessary to raise the price of reservations last year in addition to cutting the menu offered. This year, we were looking at an even worse situation; however, Jobeth Seder has generously offered, on behalf of INHEALTH Technologies, to underwrite our banquet expenses to keep the "out-of-pocket" cost for our dinner at $25.00 per person, a very reasonable sum.


We are deeply thankful for and sincerely appreciative of this outreach and support by these well-respected laryngectomee product vendors.


Instructions for reservations and menu are listed below.
( Please try to PAY and thus reserve your seat(s) ASAP, final DEADLINE is 30 June 2004 ).
