No one know better than me (and Ami!) about the waste in setting up and 
tearing down!

As I said. Any future planning is based on the assumption of a lift in 
travel restrictions. I my mind, this supports the June proposal vs. trying 
to squeeze in a makeup in May.

Not intending to "churn" , but Gail's question (and my poorly phrased one) 
of what is the criteria by which the companies of some significant members 
of the group ban travel is a necessary consideration for the next meeting. 
 As you know, setting up and then canceling a meeting is a lot of wasted 
effort (and money) for you and for the rest of us. We would want to have 
some confidence that members will be able to come. Of course, we may not 
know what the criteria are. But if they are  distance or location 
limitations, that may help assure a good pick. If it is the fact that 
there is military action or a high terrorist code, that may well go  on 
for quite a long time.

We can try (to nail the next meeting quickly). This is why I posted the 
scheduling guide. For those who need to reschedule flights to avoid 
penalty... my suggestion is to book into Provo in October. I don't believe 
rescheduling the entire year is feasible. 

If we churn on this (which it looks like we are) ... some people will be

Since there are time constraints for the near term, can we just get the
very next F2F meeting scheduled
ASAP and look at further re-arrangements at that F2F...????

For me...using keywords instead of numbers.......:)

June 2-6    (preferable)
June 16-20  (acceptable)

Location options (no preference)... for either week.

What's the fundamental goal here?  To revisit the schedule for all future
meetings in the year, or just up to (but not including) October?

Is there any reason not to try to "squeeze in" four [newly scheduled]
meetings into the remainder of the year?  [For example, June 2-6, August
4-9, October 6-10 (why not still hold this in New York?), and December 1-5
seem reasonable goals for future meetings.  Eight week separation on
average, but still allowing four face-to-face meetings for the rest of the

Given that this organization has already cut down this year's schedule of
meetings to only five, I would think that we should avoid reducing it to
four if we can.

Any thoughts?

To recover from cancelation of D.C. I've prepared a scheduling guide.

As you can see, two weeks in June appear to be the best alternatives.
Please identify any conflicts / alignments I have missed. We need to 
on the next meeting date quickly so people can reschedule their canceled
flights. People flying AA seem to have the shortest amount of time and we
may not be able to reschedule within their 2 day deadline! In this case I
recommend these people reschedule for the Provo meeting in October.
