Rich menu for the seminars & Lectures

I would like to add about the morning on the first day when the gInterfaceh was held. I sat in far the back seat so that I could watch people how they behave and react and respond to the lecturer.
The Interface began with a prayer and singing a hymn. The speech was made not by the pastor but the president of an organization named gGive Kids the Worldh The organization was established to give opportunities to meet Disney Mickey Mouse for the kids who are in incurable deceases. The organization has given ever since 1986, the opportunities for those kids of some 16000 to visit Walt Disney World. It reminds me of the American humanism based on Christianity.
Lots of meetings and seminars were held simultaneously with full attendants, to which I attended as much as I could. They looked so sincere and eager to learn. In the big hall, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, wife of the President then, spoke on the issue of the health care reformation plan through the satellite from Washington DC. I was impressed that the ATA invites the first lady in such an occasion, and that she accepts it, which made me feel a very democratic nation.
It was in October, 1993. The health care plan has passed in the senate under the Democratic administration. To my eyes, it began in the Democratic regime in 1993 and seems to come into reality in 2010, taking more than a seventeen year of span.
The speech by Fran Kenton was splendid. He used to be the man of legend in the football world with his name in its sanctuary. He was at that time the chairman of a computer soft company with the annual sales of some 115 millions. His speech was entitled gSuccess in the competitive stageh. I took his core of speech as the gPassionh
In the evening, I took a super in the gMIKADOh, where I got acquainted again with some people. Some of them were the president and the executive vice president and vice president of gSpecialized Carriers & rigging associations (SC&RA).
The president was Mr. A.J. Metler, Hauling & Rigging, Inc., who became one of the key persons for my trip in Tennessee's days after. He was proud of telling me that he was one of the invited persons for breakfast meeting in the White House with President Clinton, where the signing ceremony was held for gIsrael & PLO temporary monotonous agreementh with the presence of the two leaders.
The Vice President, Mr. William P. Rieck, was the man who later days looked for the polio American, Mrs. Ann Adams. His elder brother was polio, he said.
The director board meeting of ATA was interesting. I used to have many director positions in various organizations, so that the way the meeting is carried was my deep concern. The meeting was held in the form of U type seats in the middle of the big hall. The ordinary members surround the directorsf seats. It was a sort of the opened or disclosed board meeting.
I witnessed with my own eyes the meeting was carried out in accordance to the gRobert Rule of Orderh, which is well known in the Rotary and Lions Clubs. The way they discuss and the way the chairperson runs the meeting was indeed democratic. America is the mother country of democracy and the center of parliamentary democracy.
Some of the themes brought into the meetings were such; High court and sexual harassment, Health cares the new era in America, Health care, right or privilege?, What is meant by managed competition?, Could people select its own doctor?, Labor and human resources, regulation and international trade, safety and technology, Highway policy, tax policy, Is intermodalism chance or threat?, Compensation cost caused by neglect of environmental measure, Employeefs behavior for fraud compensation, Tax tips & traps, Safety and technology deliver the profit, How to deal with media, and ADA; America disabled anti law, Etc.
