BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — The European Flour Milling Association (Groupement des Associations Meunieres des Pays de L'ue) will sponsor Forum 2000 of the Flour Milling Industry, set for May 18-20 in Prague, Czech Republic. A story in the February issue of World Grain incorrectly named the International Milling Association as the forum sponsor. The duties of the I.M.A. have been taken over by the G.A.M.

Forum 2000, the first G.A.M. congress since the group took over the duties of the I.M.A., is being held in the Czech Republic, "in the context of the enlargement of European Union and particularly of the current accession negotiations between some East European Countries and the European Union," said Alain Fadié, president.

Martin Rupert, president of the Czech Milling Industry Association will give the welcome address. Other speakers will include:

• Josef Prihoda, Institute of Cereal Technology, Prague University of Chemistry, "Central and Eastern European Cereal Markets in a Period of Change."

• David Hodgson, U.K. consultant, "Outlook for Cereal Production in Central and Eastern Europe."

• Jean Maurey, French Milling Association, "What Will My Work Force Look Like in the New Millenium?"

• Martin F. Connolly, Allied Mills, U.K., "The High-Performance Mill of the Future: Allied Mills' Apollo Project."

• Johan Ral, European Communication Strategies, "The Dos and Don'ts of Crisis Management in the Food Sector."

• Joe O'Mara, O'Mara & Assoc., Washington, D.C., "W.T.O. Millenium Round: Why Millers Should Pay Attention."
