  • General consensus that the rolled up presentation for the BoD is ready to go and to connect the contents (and other actions underway not mentioned) to the Business Planning process.
  • Comment on implementation of recommendations (topicNewDev approach referenced) – will be difficult an complicated, some may require prototyping to fully understand impacts on the OGC processes
  • TC meeting – will go through recommendations in detail, identify key next steps and initial review of resource requirements
