Subject: Progress report meeting GIP Working Group reps with Resource Team Thursday 1/8 6pm
Greetings all and a Happy New Year to you,
To some this will seem short notice, but I tried to reach you to schedule an opportunity for the Resource Team to meet with Working Group representatives a couple of weeks ago and was not very successful...not to worry...I hope you all had a pleasant holiday season. With the Working Group reporting-out deadline of January 15th quickly approaching, the Resource Team felt we should press ahead with scheduling a time to get together.
The following date, time and location has been set:
Thursday, January 8, 2008, 6pm (in a classroom to be determined) at the Pauline Whittaker Equestrian Center on the U of A Farm campus.
The Resource Team would like to hear a casual report from at least one representative of each of the Working Groups about your progress and what, if anything, you need to complete your undertakings. So be in touch with your Working Group colleagues and see who can attend to give us a quick and dirty update. It is time to schedule what will no doubt prove to be a very interesting and exciting meeting where each group can report-out on their results.
Hope all is well with each of you,
Barbara Elaine Boland
