The initial section drafts are being submitted to Jenny bowen. Jenny will collate the sections and send a consolidated draft to the group [subsequent to the meeting, the target was changed to October 5th]. Everyone is encouraged to comment on any and all sections; those providing the initial drafts are relying on the group’s input. Please email your comments to Jenny.

If differences of opinion arise in editing the guide, we have several avenues for obtaining resolution. The viewpoints can be discussed on a conference call, an expert can be consulted, both points of view can be clearly represented or compared in the guide, or an appendix can contain alternate views. Jenny will be the final arbiter.

Next Call
The next call will take place on October 6th at 1 p.m. Central Time.
