Frank, Thank you for your reference to the Existing Building Committee Green Book and your overly kind words about my contribution to it which has not been as much as some other members of that Committee. Unfortunately, most of the Committee's time last year was spent on that document called the 2000 UCEB (ugh) which you may have heard about. I hope that we can spend more time on the Green Book because it is a much needed resource book and much more should be done to it. If anyone out there reading this wants to participate and contribute to it and learn more about it in the process we will welcome you into one of the Existing Building Committees of SEAOC. Contact Jack Laws, the current Chair at sde.sf(--nospam--at)worldnet.att.net or me for more information. I wonder how many of the other SE Associations have active Existing Building Committees. SEAOC-EBC has a list server to discuss this subject and it would be interesting to have a link to other similar groups. Richard Hess ****************************************** Richard L.
