Report from the Chair
The Recording Relationships Task Force (hereafter, TF) will be repopulated. A TF will be created to look at and act on a Discussion Paper about Pseudonymous Corporate Bodies. Also, meeting minutes will likely become less comprehensive in the interests of reducing the labor required to produce them.
