To Do:  Granted many of us will be at our paying jobs but if anyone can make it to this meeting that would be great.  (For those who feel the time is inappropriate READ THIS.) We are not allowed to speak but any attendance to show we care would be awesome.  Last meeting was on the 4th floor I believe but check with the front desk when you walk in.  Last meeting was a roundtable sitting where members of the task force sat, we took the seats that were not at the table.  There will be FREE beer, wine,  and gourmet lunch served.  (As a legal disclaimer we must note that one sentence in this announcement is a flat out lie. Here's the Agenda)
