Decisions on the WYLD Annual Training sessions have not yet been made, but Kristin asked for clarification on the hours of the day of training so she could complete other scheduling.

Strategic Plan: The Communication and Marketing strategic area was reviewed. Direction A, Goal 1 Susan Simpson asked about training committee chairs, which is normally part of the appointment process, but an annual meeting of committee chairs might be useful. Susan hopes to teach a WLA class on running meetings which might help too. Direction A, Goal 3 Brian reported that WYLD email has dropped from 500 seats to 150. Goals B and C are progressing too. No changes in Communications and Marketing were recommended as the goals are being met.
