Good morning, Michelle -
Ken Lay said that he would be happy to be the opening keynote speaker at the
kick off luncheon on Wednesday, April 25, 2001.
Sorry for the delay, but at least we are sure he wants to do it.

Subject: Invitation for IAEE Keynote
Hi Rosalee-- I just wanted to thank you so much for your extra help on our
inquiry to Ken. We understand completely that the April 25 slot following
his return from vacation is not the most ideal arrangement. I think it's
always easiest for someone like him if he knows that a speech given recently
can easily serve as the basis for a new request. I wanted to remind you of
my previous suggestion that his keynote presentation in Montreal last May to
the World Forum on Energy Regulation would accomplish most of that, and we
would work with Rob and others to minimize any effort required to add new
content. Hopefully, this will help with the decision this week. As I
mentioned the other day, Ken is really the most authoritative figure when it
comes to the idea that economic concepts can be used to build energy markets
and business enterprises that lead to better societies! Talk soon, and
don't hesitate to ever ask for a "quid pro quo" from us.
