We discussed STF meeting structure – ideas for changing it to make it more engaging and group oriented (ex. Call in #, 15 mins of personal sharing sustainability etc).  Results:

  • Keep agenda structure the same for at least first 45 minutes of meeting
  • Meet outside when weather permitting – MRF patio and Redfield patio. Steph will announce outside seating the morning of the meeting when a reminder goes out.
