FileMaker, Inc. "Stuart Illian's proven success in strategic sales and
partnership marketing makes him the right leader for FSA's next step

Members of the program receive numerous benefits: an FSA guide; a Toolbox
CD with valuable tools and full working versions of new software; a
technical information CD; access to the FSA Private Forum; FSA Talk, an
exclusive member-to-member forum for discussion of FileMaker product and
