2 rather simple questions.
what does NFAIS stand for? That organization is new to me.
Also, what is meant by "mindshare"?

An NFAIS Forum for the Information Community:  Online Usage Statistics -
Current Trends and Future Directions in Meeting User Needs

The NFAIS Committee on Best Practices/Usage Statistics is organizing a
that will provide an overview of the current status and future trends in
development and provision of online usage statistics - all within the
context of evolving technology, emerging standards and most importantly
customer needs and expectations.  

This one-day session will be held on Friday, October 1, 2004 at St.
University Manhattan Campus, New York, N.Y, from 9:00A.M. - 4:30P.M.  It
will begin with an overview of the development of online usage
and a discussion of the various standards that have been developed for
use.  A group of users from diverse market sectors - academic,
and corporate - will present their perspective with regard to how well
needs are currently being met, and what they perceive as the essential
requirements to be met in the future.  The expectations - and
limitations -
of technology in meeting those needs will be addressed, as will the
concerns related to users' privacy rights.  The remainder of the session
will be devoted to case studies of actual implementation of online usage
statistics, highlighting the challenges that were met and the level of
customer satisfaction that resulted.

Come and join your peers in learning what organizations need to know -
plan for - in order to ensure that evolving customer needs are met -
now and in the future.   Register early, as seating is limited. The
program, registration form, directions to the meeting location, and a
of nearby hotels are available at:
