    • Obstacles to sharing information - not everyone has access to a computer for electronic communication.

  • Any room for outside consultant to perform Jane Elliot style brown eyes vs. blue eyes?  I think rotary club does stuff like this.  Should we as a Global Center of Excellence do an exercise like this with our staff.
  • Alisa to revise "who's who" in hopes that managers will better know who to ask for what.  Eg asking for Efin staff account without first making sure there is an Efin member account.
  • Bonus - we were all delighted to see Destiny and Ellen return!
