A proposed agenda for Thursday's mtg! r. fureigh

This is a repost of an email sent to the QJL listserv

Feedback can be sent by email to

Hey all,

Remember that e-mail a while back calling for folks to coordinate the
first QJL (*official name yet to be determined) meeting? Well, a few
folks met earlier today and drafted the skeleton of an agenda for
Thursday's meeting (see below).

Please feel free to suggest changes even if you can't make it to the meeting.

Also! It'd be great to have a diverse lineup of facilitators, yeah? If
you're interested in helping facilitate, let us all know! (E-mail the
listserv and arrive closer to 7:00 if possible.)

THURSDAY. 7:30–9PM. THE CENTER. See you there!**
