If you plan on attending the annual POMS Meeting starting May 9th in Atlanta, we would like to invite you to a session Jay is chairing  on Sunday, May 11th, from 1:00-2:30pm. The program is called Classroom Exercises that Teach and Excite. It features six profs, each of whom will talk about exercises they use to spice up their OM classes. We hope you can attend. (I am sorry to miss out, but just had an emergency appendectomy and have to stay home)! Here is the program:
