The EDRM mid-year working meeting (aka The October Meeting) is scheduled for October 20 and 21, 2010. The objective of this meeting is to bring together the EDRM working groups for face-to-face meetings to work through the issues and advance the efforts of each working group toward completion of working group objectives and deliverables.
The proposed agenda for the meeting is noted below. Leading up to the meeting we will work with the project and working group leads to refine the details of the schedule. We need to hear from everyone whether you will be able to attend these meetings as well as suggestions. Your prompt response will be greatly appreciated.

We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the significant level of progress already made by several project teams. These groups met the challenges of summer vacations, heavy business workloads, coordination of schedules for conference calls and the like. Each project team is well on the way to making the 2009-2010 EDRM Projects successful. Thanks to all.

Let us know if you have any questions.
