Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Below is the program for the fall dinner conference of
the Committee for Monetary Research and Education,
to be held on the evening of Wednesday, November
20, at the Union Club in New York.

The conference will emphasize discussion of a topic
important to GATA -- the credit vulnerabilities of
banks, corporations, and countries -- and your
secretary/treasurer will even get to be chairman of
one of the discussions.

This is always a great dinner and an insightful
conference, and a bargain for $125. So please
consider attending. I hope to see you there.

CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
