This note announces the April meeting of the P1394 Ballot Response
Committee (BRC) meeting in Austin, Texas. It is anticipated this will
be the last BRC meeting and that at the meeting conclusion there will
have been produced the new draft of P1394 intended by the BRC to
respond to the public review comments directed to P1394 draft 7.1v1.
Three sessions are scheduled as follows:

          E_mail:  gary.hoffman at

Continuing the practice of seeking participation with the broad base
of individuals interested in P1394, the present meeting is being held
in conjunction with the April meeting of the P1394 Trade Association.
Sessions (1) and (2) above will overlap and be scheduled as break out
groups of the Trade Association meeting of April 4 to 6, 1995.
Session (3) is exclusively a meeting of the BRC. All three sessions of
BRC are open to any person interested in participating in the BRC work
effort, be they members of the trade association or not. As per prior
BRC meetings, each participant will have an equal opportunity and equal
voice in the BRC discussions.

Gary Hoffman is the host of the meeting and should be the contact point
regarding any administrative questions as well as questions regarding
the Trade Association agenda, sessions, or membership. Gary advises me
there may be some contribution requested toward defraying costs for those
BRC participants partaking in the catered lunch and refreshment breaks.
Gary can be contacted if additional information is needed concerning
directions and hotel arrangements.

Jerry Marazas is the chair for the BRC sessions and should be contacted
regarding questions as to the technical agenda.

<> Proceed from the Austin airport to Interstate I35
<> Proceed North on I35 to the Breaker Lane exit
<> Proceed West on Breaker Lane (several miles), crossing though
   Burnett Road and crossing over Mopac.
<> The MCC building (large and hard to miss) is on the right hand side
   of Breaker Lane, just passed the intersection of Breaker Lane
   and Mopac.
