The International Spy Museum needs 16 of our members (guides and tour operators) to participate in a pre-opening so we can help them test their systems. They need us to play the role of "visitor" NOT "tour guide." 

To summarize what is stated in the email below, you need to be available on April 11 at 5:00 PM for a conference call and on April 17 from 5:00 - 6:30 PM at the museum for the test run.  The new museum is located at L'Enfant Plaza and is easy to access from the L'Enfant Metro Station.

Please email me by Sunday, March 31, if you can participate. PLEASE DO NOT USE "REPLY ALL" to this email.
