    The staff of The Mid-Atlantic Equity Center is very excited to invite you
    to our annual Title IX and Gender Equity Network Meeting on May 8, 2000,
    from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. The
    focus of this year's meeting will be "A Dialogue About Boys." We are also
    pleased to have available the Center's newest publication, Why Boys Don't
    Talk and Why We Care: A Mother's Guide to Connection. If you are unable to
    attend, you will find book information and order form on our website

    The meeting place is the Marriott Residence Inn located at 7335 Wisconsin
    Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland. Valet parking is available at the hotel, at the
    rate of $8 per day. The parking rate for overnight guests is $13. For those
    arriving by subway, the hotel is located one block south of the Bethesda
    Metro Station on the red line. A continental breakfast will be provided in
    the morning and lunch will be served at noon.

    As always, the purpose of these network meetings is to give us an
    opportunity to have an extended conversation about current gender equity
    concerns. We will start the morning with a panel who will introduce issues
    about boys and than we will meet in roundtable groups to further discuss
    the issues, make recommendations, and share resources. We will then
    reconvene the group to share our observations and strategies. Resources and
    model programs to work more effectively with boys will also be available.

    Please fill out the attached registration form and either mail, e-mail, or fax (301) 657-8782 to the Center. Please feel free
    to invite other people from your district. Those individuals may be health
    educators, counselors, parents, or administrators-- you decide.
    Registration is limited to the first 100 participants. Please RSVP by
    April 30, 2000. Please call me at (301) 657-7741 x 108 or Christine
