Next Meeting: February (10 minutes)

  1. We’ll need to schedule a special February meeting (our normally scheduled meeting, February 18th, falls on the Presidents Day holiday). At the February meeting we can continue to discuss the Working Draft Part 1, and if desired, can invite one or more chapter authors to join us for discussions about topics related to schools and youth success (e.g., institutions, housing, neighborhood centers).
  2. Optional: we can cancel the PEG’s February meeting, and instead, PEG members can attend one of the public workshops.
