Dear chairs

Semi-annual reminder of the upcoming start of Daylight Saving Time, which
will start in a week.

Most of the US will be moving its clocks forward on Sunday March 14 2010.
This is two weeks earlier than Europe.
Most European clocks will move 1 hour relative to UTC on Sunday March 28

Between March 14 and March 28, the time difference between US and Europe
will be 1 hour less than it currently is.

Most Zakim teleconference times are based on the US clocks. Therefore,
unless groups have sent specific requests to base their teleconference
times on some other timezone or to change your teleconference times this
month, most folk outside the US will need to join teleconferences *one
hour earlier* between 14 March and 28 March.

The time links in each date of the teleconference calendar [1] confirm the
time that Zakim has been instructed to start the

If you are unsure about the scheduled time of any teleconference, check
the UTC (Z) link above the teleconference name on the specific date of
that teleconference; e.g. [2].

If you require any changes to individual teleconference times, please be
sure to give adminreq sufficient notice [3].
