14 ASA members volunteered their time as consultants to assist conference attendees in using internet resources. The volunteers were: Joe Caruso, Richard Chowning, Ali Dinar, David Easterbrook, Gregory Finnegan, Karen Fung, Kerry Gallivan, Al Kagan, Patricia Kuntz, Sheryl McCurdy, Julie Sisskind, Jeff Strabone, Jim Zaffiro, Joanne Zellers.
