  • MCD planning
We're missing not being at the Interop in person - this will be our 5th virtual interop
  • Not seeing a lot of Positive energy in group, though folks are trying
    • difficult missing the face to face collaboration and idea exchanges
    • also seems like folks are working against very challenging schedules/deadlines for their own work projects
  • New Ch/V Ch that haven't been part of face to face IVOA & are not catching on so well
    • I think we see this in the Apps V Chair feeling he's not ready for the Chair position
    • See it in other positions not up for renewal this time too
  • Wonder if we should come up with another possible Host for the Fall Interop ???
