          • Feedback from the last virtual connectathon stated that we needed a way to connect the participants and their systems in advance. Sandy suggests people could give system information in the pre-connectathon survey and other communications. David suggests they develop a one-pager.
          • Discussion over the report-out template. Want to make sure we're collecting the info we need to approve things later. The participants list should not include observers if 3 participants are required. Grahame: If you intend for the connectathon to contribute towards maturity assessment, there should be a maturity assessment report-out that is separate from general connectathon report-out. Will need one for resources and one for IGs.
            • Sandy will work with Melva to develop a maturity assessment Connectathon report-out.
