(second attempt due to email problems ­ sorry if you end up getting this

Hi all,

I started to put up an agenda for the next meeting in March in Portland.
It¹s on the website as usual.


The main points on the agenda will be the readings and votes for MPI 3.1
(see also below). Aside from that, there should be time for WG and plenary
meetings as usual. To make sure we get through the reading and voting
process, though, I moved the WG times to Monday afternoon and Tuesday
morning only plus some time after the voting block on Thursday.

WG chairs: if you have any requests for WG or plenary time, please let me
know and I will add it to the agenda.

As for MPI 3.1 ­ below, as a reminder, is the timeline we talked about last
time. In order to proceed with the MPI 3.1 process, we¹ll need final
documents by 2/16 (3 weeks from now) and complete drafts by 2/2 (1 week from
now). The chapter committee chairs will coordinate this process, but if you
are on a chapter committee, please be ready to help move forward with this.
Also, if you are not on a committee, but would like to, please contact the
respective chair and cc me. The current chapter committees are listed on the
MPI 3.1 page:
