    Better if it had started closer to on time - last MPV event I went to started late also. Frustrating since I live far away and make an effort to be on time.

      Maybe you walked in at 4:20 but we didn't see you, Ani. I felt concerned over this discussion, especially because Khadijah left the group. I checked my phone to see what time I called you Saturday because we were wondering where the board members were. My phone shows 4:38, and I remember you walking in the door right after. Like Ayman said, it's ok guys, no one meant any harm. I just wanted to weigh in since my name was mentioned. Love you guys.

    It was great to meet the board. I agree with Khadijah that it would have been better had it started on time. (In my case, for childcare reasons.)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
