Google Search the BCP Web Site

[Caveat - Google's spiders have not searched through all the links to all of the Power Point slides. These results are only  partial. For example, type in Morning Session  and as of 8/20/08 you only see the Agendas for 17 meetings. Google has not yet found  the "Morning Session" pages for the meetings of  6/4/08 (it is only now in its own  subdirectory), 11/10/05, 6/15/05,  4/29/03, 1/14/03 and 10/8/02. However, for some of these "missing pages" Google has found some speaker's names and their power point slides. Note for some of the earlier links to meetings in 2001 and 2002 they are at the PTO site as listed below and thus no agendas or slides are here for Google to find.]
