Hi DDSers,

A followup on yesterday's conversation:

Yesterday we got a quick, noncommittal response, but a response 
nonetheless, from Jim Jagielski/Michael Tiemann (who have been 
temporarily confabulated in one being).  At least they know we exist and 
have been trying to reach them.  We have asked them to affirm or decline 
by the end of today.  Our fingers are crossed.

I forgot to mention yesterday that I will be away and out of touch next 
week, back on Monday, July 1.  Carol will steer while I'm away.  That 
may include inviting yet someone else for that 4th "industry" panel 
position.  We wondered if any other industry people were coming to the 
meeting.  Erin mentioned Stephan Falke (sp?), from Northrup Grumman, 
will be attending and could possibly fill that position if we need it. 
Does anyone know offhand of any other industry types that will be attending?

In the mean time, I am composing an email to send to the panel as whole 
once it is finalized.  The goal is to try to help the panel jell into a 
relatively coherent group.  The email will provide another copy of the 
abstract, which includes a description of what a decadal survey is.  It 
will also include the latest version of questions for the panelists, 
slightly tweaked since they were invited.  I will share that with group 
for feedback before sending.

I am also preparing an introduction for the panel discussion to set the 
stage and introduce the panelists.  I will also plan on providing a 
short wrap up at the end to summarize and give some plans on moving forward.

We are budgeting the 90 minute session time the following way:

10 introduction, Anne
15 visionary statement, Stan Aholt
7 * 4 = 28 minutes for panelist statements  (though not Stan, as he will 
have already spoken???)
32 discussion
  5 wrap up, Anne
90 minutes total

Chris is going to give Stan his visionary talking points.  Chris, what, 
if anything, do you need from us for that?  I have a few ideas... 
Perhaps a separate email thread for that?

Please provide feedback on any of the above.  Thanks, all!!
