    Hi All,
    This is a 1st draft of a Resolution.  Have at it....

    I will close edits at 5:00 ET on Sunday.

    Can I get guidance from COL about what to do?  Does this need to be put on your agenda?  I'm ccing Chair Joe Thompson with this draft as a heads up.

    What should be my next step before submitting it to Resolution Committee?

    Jennifer

    Jennifer,

    thank you SO much for  pulling this together. Part of the reasoning behind the request I made to the Council list yesterday was because I'm in the middle of finishing a large grant request, and I simply didn't have time to dig in to start writing. I think you have made an excellent start, and I encourage everyone to take a moment and leave comment on the draft:


    Jennifer, what can we do to help move this forward?
