      Hello PMPAG,
      As promised, I've noted the following below:
      --steering committee meeting times and their corresponding topics
      --people who signed up as being interested in that topic
      --peoples' top issues in each topic that rose to the top (this list is incomplete, as it came from people who had time to stay after and anyone who did not attend didn't contribute)

      I've noted an expanded time slot (pending availability of the Boards and Commissions room) so we can get more done.

      I've attached a "comment summaries" file that Katherine Bush helped create. This file represents comments made in past meetings.

      --if you're interested in a topic, and your name is not below next to the topic, let me know you're interested
      --if you cannot attend a steering committee meeting, please email me your top issues in that category so that i can make sure it's represented
      --to consider spearheading the completion of one of these documents for a category below

      --Using the attached Enforcement document as (an imperfect) template, brainstorm the list of priority issues/concerns/recommendations that we'd like to address in a document for each topic.
      --Identify people on the PMPAG who can work on the document to get it to a more complete state, and by when.
      --If you'd like changes to topics/meeting times below let me know.

      Becca. (ps: I'll be gone for the July 7th meeting, but our other fearless leader Paulo knows what to do)
