A quick reminder. If you are interested in participating, please join us (even if you didn’t RSVP).


One note: Many respondents are understandably interested in an update on the Email and Calendar replacement project. Please know that the selection committee is continuing their work, and it is hoped that a product will be selected by the end of June. Because of University Policy governing the RFP process, no specific details about the products or recommendation can be shared at this time.


I look forward to an interesting discussion later this morning.
