Keith and Jan Oswald would both like to attend the Feb. 7th Lunch and Learn in Des Moines on "Women in Technology", but the system only allows for one response for attendance. We share one computer. I tried to send the invitation to another site which we reserve for family communication, but it still did not allow for a "friend" response. Thank you for considering our problem with the system.
