We have about 50 registered for the July 8 (Tuesday) event at York and two folks will be presenting/connecting virtually via Zenlive.  Patrick Bérubé from i-edit has graciously sponsored and will be attending to support the online portion.

The pre- and post- meetings will be held at the Sandman Signature Toronto Airport Hotel (  Many of you (16) have indicated you plan to attend Monday, and a few have indicated so for Wednesday.  We appreciate any and all input and time you can contribute to helping build our network.

We would invite you to review the 2013 State of the Nation report prior to Tuesday’s meeting.  A copy of it can be found here:

Our panelists will not be reviewing this material, focusing instead on new and emergent practices and innovations in their jurisdictions.

I look forward to seeing you all next week.  Should you have any questions, please let me know.
