Ray F: need to have a meeting to discuss impact of Ryan’s departure and funding status. Jeff S: any point in meeting before a new GIO is appointed? Ryan L: yes, we need to push in order to be ready in the spring. Discussion.

Funding & GrantsPam Kelrick/Ryan Lanclos

50 States Initiative grant “coming any day now”. Thought it was Nov 3, now it is mid-Nov. Very short turnaround time. Need a lot of coordination, will be difficult in absence of GIO. Many decisions need to be made to submit good, thoughtful application. Discussion needs to occur about what general direction will be. Many recipients of grant in the past have not been successful in achieving the aim of their application. Would like to focus on achievable goals. Is there one item so important to focus solely on? Discussion.
