At the April meeting, we will be finalizing the list of objectives, which will allow final determination of the number of PAR to be recommended.  Presentations to address the items listed in the action plan above are strongly encouraged.  Further review of the working drafts of the HSSG “PAR A” PAR and 5 Criteria will also be completed.  In addition, we need to begin to make preparations for the tutorial session we will need to give at the July Plenary.

Presentations should be kept to 20 minutes in duration, excluding time for questions and answers.  Requests for presentation time greater than 20 minutes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the requestor should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify the additional time.


Presentation requests and materials are due to me by Tuesday April 10.  Presentations should be mailed to me at  To assist in meeting planning earlier requests and / or submissions are appreciated.  As a reminder, please make sure that all requests for presentations or submissions of presentation material have no restrictive notices at the bottom of the email.  All such emails will be refused.
