  judith hellerstein:I am interested in still continuing

  William Michael Cunningham:I am interested.

  Silvia Vivanco:members on the link above

  Glenn McKnight:Two Crop reps.   One from FBSC and one from Outreach.  Iam the  Outreach rep

  Alan Greenberg (ALAC):Note that the ALAC and Regions will be dicussing whether we still need a CROP-RT, and if so, exactly what the group will be doing.

  Leah Symekher:I think it is important for expereienced people to invite new people in positions and train them- follow up to Judith's comment

  judith hellerstein:I think after a year on FBSC and other issues we can train you

  Alan Greenberg (ALAC):The CROP-RT does not reach out.  It simply reviews applications that come in.

  William Michael Cunningham:That is not what I want to do

  Leah Symekher:FYI ..I am not interested in the role :-)

  William Michael Cunningham:OK

  judith hellerstein:Thanks alan so we are sticking with the old team. that is helpful

  judith hellerstein:That is not CROP

  judith hellerstein:NO that is not CROP

  judith hellerstein:That is outreach

  Glenn McKnight:Heidi has question or comment

  William Michael Cunningham:Again, not outreach. Strategy.

  Alan Greenberg (ALAC):The Outreach & Engagement SC is where decision on outreach is done and where the strategy is decided (that is on an At-Large wide basis, not just each RALO).
