Subject: CC Special Thanks!
Greetings everyone! I trust everyone had a safe trip home. Last week was a very difficult week for us as a project team, and for me personally. We rallied together, as a team, and delivered a strong and compelling message. I need to thank everyone both at a personal level and as the PT leader for your assistance and support in compiling and delivering our message. Thank you! After such meetings, particularly when the trip home is long and the meeting is turbulant, I like to take some time to reflect on the success and quality of the meeting. Without hesitation, 1) there are certainly things I would do differently, 2) overall - the meeting was an overwhelming success! We can attribute our success to the number of hardworking people, and it is important to me that we take a moment to give proper recognition. A) The entire project team. We are taking on a very difficult problem, have brought together many people from a variety of backgrounds, a variety of skill sets and experiences, and with a variety of orientations, many of whom have never worked together before. Patience, cooperation, active listening and acceptance from the group are essential. An environment to get work done doesn't happen by itself, thank you all for contributing. B) Our work group leaders. We are fortunate to have many, some of whom have official titles. We all know who you are! We couldn't make the progress we have made without their leadership and technical skills. This is a volunteer effort and your extra effort is greatly appreciated, and we need to say thank you more often. Thank you! C) Our Editors. Our time frames are short, the technical tools available to us sub-optimal, our communication needs high. Our editors are in the background facilitating communication. Thank you! D) My new co-PT Leader, Mary Kay Blantz. I can say without hesitation, that Mary Kay's contributions to the team have been and will continue to be plenty. With enthusiasm, I say welcome and thank you of behalf of the project team. Not only are we taking this moment to thank everyone for past participation, we are thanking you in advance for the had work that we as a project team will need to do over the next couple of months in preparation for the August meeting. We have a lot of ground to cover between now and August, so please give serious consideration to the amount of time you will be able to contribute, and the work efforts you will be able to contribute to. If you haven't already done so, please contact myself or James Whittle to volunteer for a work group. Thanks again! lms James Whittle wrote: > CC team members > > You can now view the presentation which Lisa et al gave at Brussels on our > web site.
