Chapter Overview 14 June 2007 North Star Chapter 8 Meeting Venues Defense Contractors are being required to be more rigorous in their process for approving and allowing foreign nationals access to their plant. Results in extra costs for Contractor, i.e., advance verifications, guards on over-time, etc. Results in need for longer advance notices of an individuals intention to attend, which because of timing may preclude our foreign national members and colleagues from attending. We are looking for additional meeting locations where we can hold meetings and not face the long notification lead times we now have. If you have any suggestions please contact: or
