  1. Hi Cathy, Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the f2f in Vancouver. /Camilla

  2. I'm also not able to attend the f2f meeting. Maybe I'm dialing in (depending on time and availability)

  3. Hi Cathy - I will be attending this one on Sheree's behalf as she is away that week.  Sheree will then continue instead of me after that.

  4. Hi Cathy, I was all set to attend the f2f. But something has come up at the last minute, and I'm unable to travel now. I'll still dial in though (if lines available)

  5. Hi Cathy, As stated above I will not attend the meeting, but looking at the number of meetings not held in 2018 I think we should perhaps try to schedule a meeting every second month for the rest of the year and see how that works? If you have the time you could perhaps take this up under AOB? /Camilla

  6. Camilla Wiberg Danielsen I have added this to the agenda. I usually keep an eye on the monthly meeting agenda and then cancel when there is insufficient material. Regards, Cathy

  7. Cathy Richardson Thank you. Yes, I know that you cancel the meetings, and perhaps this is a fine way to do make sure the time is in the calendars. I just thought it could perhaps be discussed. /Camilla
