Y2K Community Conversation set for Memphis, Tenn.

The Clinton administration's Year 2000 czar, John Koskinen, and Rep. Harold Ford Jr., (D-Tenn.) will hold a "Y2K Community Conversation" in Memphis, Tenn., Tuesday.

Ford and Koskinen, chairman of the President's Council on Year 2000 Conversion, will hold discussions with officials from the state of Tennessee, the Memphis Fire Department, Bell South, the Tennessee Bankers Association and other organizations that want to voice concerns about the Year 2000 computer problem and identify areas where further planning and preparation are needed.

The Memphis conversation is one of dozens of meetings scheduled to take place this summer between Year 2000 council officials and community leaders throughout the United States.

The event will be held at Christian Brothers College in Memphis. The council has put together the "Y2K Community Conversations Toolkit," which can be ordered through an information line at (888) USA-4Y2K.
