In the schematic Corby posted, the potentiometer (used as a variable 
resistor) makes up a very small part of the total resistance of the 
series string, so the overall tempco is dominated by the tempcos of the 
fixed resistors (2.4k to 4.4k 1ppm/ C, depending on trim).  The pot will 
increase the overall tempco a little bit, but not anywhere near 20ppm.

Best regards,
