Some of us at United Way of America are really interested in this meeting and want to know more details of the location of the event and the specific issues being discussed.  Thank you.

Per the question above, event details will be posted on this page—we promise!  We may hold off until a few hours before the event because the space in Second Life is under last-minute construction.  Thank you for your patience.

As for the specific issues to be discussed, the post by Jonathan Fanton linked to at the top of this page provides a good overview.  The format will be more of a discussion between Jonathan and Philip than a presentation, so we cannot post a detailed outline in advance.  During the one-hour presentation, substantial time and energy will be devoted to taking questions from the audience.

My colleague and I had some connectivity issues and weren’t able to make the meeting today. Is there any way to get a recap of the event? Thank you.
