TO: Ken Adams
FROM: Jean Carter
Attached is the agenda for the next Roundtable meeting; the materials are also in the mail to you.
Please note in particular the Sunday morning public education campaign workshop. Ideally each division will have a representative in attendance who will receive training in the components of the campaign and the various ways that the resources that are being developed can be utilized by the divisions.That representative can then serve as resource to the division members and governance and can be a contact person for the staff who are working on the campaign.It would be terrific if Division 40 could be represented at this workshop, as well as at the other two meetings.
If you have questions or comments, please call me.
