Minutes and notes from meetings

The PPN Secretariat met on Tuesday night for their monthly meeting.  This year, the minutes from PPN meetings will be uploaded onto our website so that you can follow areas that interests you.  The Secretariat’s January minutes were agreed Tuesday night, so you can read them here.

Likewise, Lee Dillon, who is a representative on the LCD committee, would like to share her notes from the last meeting here.  These are notes from the last LCDC meeting, and not official minutes.

Sharing our notes and minutes is new to us, so this may take a few months of trial and error before we find the right tone and method.  Please let us know if you have any advice or feedback about this.
