Megan are you gathering minutes also. Can you by voice identify who is speaking?
Cristina, I'm gathering the overall minutes as I believe that Taunya is noting the specifics of the suggestions and action items. I am having a hard time identifying who is speaking by their voice though. It may be helpful if members could identify themselves first.
I agree with Megan if the people could identify themselves first. Thank you.
