It looks like they were not made public. I'm sure this was just an oversight, but if someone with the power could make those public I'd be grateful.

Thank you.

Hi Andrea!

i looked at these, and the public checkbox is already checked. Not sure if someone else fixed it--can you try one more time? If they don't work for you I will repost them. (Friday at this point). Thanks!

Hey Cindi et al - on reading the budget report I find I have some questions, so I'd like to take that out of the consent agenda.  Y/N?

The first item on our f2f agenda at Midwinter is the consent agenda--just speak up then and we'll pull it out.  Thanks!

Hi Andromeda:

If you want to send me the questions you have on the FY 13 budget in advance of Midwinter, then that will give me some time to do any research needed.

Cool, thanks.  I am still working on distilling them down into a concise form (and I'm in Toronto for a few days), but I will work on that.
