As you prepare for your on-site Committee Meeting while in Houston, remember that your AMS Community page is a great spot to have preliminary discussions, post your agenda, and follow-up with minutes from your on-site committee meeting – especially for those that were unable to attend. Keep in mind that your Community Page is only accessible by active board and committee members. Basic directions for posting discussions and documents are available in the AMS Community Quick Start Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pmnRUBb5RUspE_0tDYrW1l-eBvnrwOzk_ix_xM5TMwY/edit
