PREC Updates: Community Meeting follow up
Thank you for being a part of our community meeting this past Tuesday if you were able to make it. We as a steering committee were inspired by you all, and felt as though we started off on a strong foot. Thank you for your time and energy.
COMMUNITY MEETING FOLLOW UP
Subcommittee moderators are finalizing dates for the next set of subcommittee meetings and will be in touch shortly with the specifics. If you are interested in multiple subcommittees, you will have access to all of the dates for all subcommittees so you can remain fluid and move through any of them if you wish.
We are in the process of synthesizing this past Tuesday's community meeting discussions and next steps for each subcommittee and will send that out in advance of our next set of meetings. Included below are the links for each subcommittee's documents and the ideas generated thus far (we will be cleaning these up in the next couple of days).
