One of the things that we miss is the networking and pizza session that we have held for ½ hour at 6 PM before the formal presentation. We cannot do anything about the pizza 😊 but we do want to try and have a networking session. Please come to the meeting prepared to share your video and participate at that time. Note that we only plan to start a meeting recording when the formal presentation begins. (And let us know what you think of that approach after the meeting so that we can decide whether or not to continue it.) “See” you there. Bill
