All Regional Co-chairs and Technical Subcommittee Chairs should plan to attend this meeting. There will be a planning meeting for global technical activities in the 2007/2008 fiscal year. Activities include technical workshops, grant-in-aid workshops, and cooperative meetings with other technical organizations. This meeting will also acquaint and review the procedures and duties of Technical Subcommittee Chairs.

Plenary Session - 9:00 am - Noon

In keeping with the mission of the ICDD, we will continue with our format of exchanging ideas and information with our Tuesday Plenary Session and Social events. This year will be highlighted by a group tour to the Franklin Institute for the special exhibit on "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs." This is the first time in over 25 years that this exhibit has left Egypt, and Philadelphia was chosen as one of four United States cities to host the exhibit. Tickets are limited, so please register early. Our Tuesday agenda includes:

Morning Plenary Session: The plenary session will feature Professor Michel Barsoum, Dr. John Faber and Dr. Cyrus Crowder . Both Dr. Faber and Dr. Crowder will discuss advances in total pattern analysis. Dr. Faber, who is retiring as ICDD's Principal Scientist at the end of the meeting, will discuss developments in PDF databases. Dr. Crowder, from The Dow Chemical Company, will give a presentation on a wide range of industrial applications of X-ray Diffraction. Finally, Professor Michel Barsoum will present recent scientific evidence about how the great pyramids of Egypt were built.

Thursday: Technical Meetings, Technical Committee Meeting, and Annual Meeting of Members

Technical Meetings
(continued from Wednesday, see above)

Technical Committee Meeting
The Technical Committee meeting reviews motions and action items from the numerous technical subcommittees and task groups. Since task groups meet at different times during the year and some of the subcommittees meet in concurrent sessions on Tuesday, this meeting provides a summary of key items to all attendees. In addition, guest speakers are invited to present topics of current interest. Regional Technical Co-chairs review activities in their region of the globe (eight regions) and present recommendations for future activities.

Annual Meeting of Members
All members come together for a formal gathering at this meeting to hear remarks from the Chairman, a review of the Board of Directors' (BoD) and Headquarters' activities, reports of selected BoD Committees, including the Technical and Finance Committees, as well as reports of Task Groups. Corporate activities are also discussed along with any new business items brought forth by members.

Friday: Board of Directors' Meeting

This meeting is generally closed to the public.
