Matters Arising :
Please come with your own observations and hopes for the project. Given that this is our first meeting and there is much for our consideration, let us start promptly at 10 am so that we can aim to finish by 1:30/2:00 p.m., allowing people time to travel home. Thank you.
I thank you again and look forward to seeing you on the 19th.
