Are you interested in FHISO?

Will you be at RootsTech 2013 a few days from now?

If so, be sure to stop by the FHISO Booth – Booth 646 in the Exhibits Hall.

In particular we’re arranging a “Meet & Greet” that will start at the FHISO Booth at 5:15pm on Thursday 21 March – after the last session for the day, and move to a nearby location to be determined (the Exhibit Hall closes at 6pm). If you don’t have a session in that last time slot, stop by earlier.

Looking forward to seeing many of you there!
