6:53 PM
<brendajerop> rosalie: I think that's a great idea. Is there a specific time of the month when the monthly meetings occur?

6:58 PM
<rosalie> Rosalie If you ask a question we can't answer now due to time, We could keep it for next meeting and address it as an agenda point. Or better still I collect the questions and send out drafted replies on mailing list while waiting for next meeting to make it more lively.
7:01 PM If there is no question, still ok.
