The next DASA meeting is the 3d Tuesday, that being next TUesday, 9/16.
The regularly scheduled time is 5:00 and the regularly scheduled
place is Michelangelo's coffeeshop on State.
I will not be able to attend, but I wanted to send this draft Agenda
and ask someone to take minutes.......
Please see the minutes of the last meeting as a reference for what was covered.
Items that I think would be on the next agenda would include:
-The email lists should be sorted out now. Everyone from the Google
Groups is on the general CALA Venezuela list, which is at
email@example.com. This includes Vz government staff. The
Google Group (which this is going to) does not include government
-Confirmation that letter to Co-ops went to AEB, translated (Charity
-Charity was going to be in touch with Omar's referrale (D James) in
Sanarae to get advice on having a delegation.
-Once we are in touch with AEB's official sistering committee, we can
float delegation dates and see what works for both places (Charity is
nominal delegation coordinator)
-Check in on the status of the lightbulb project? Jesus wrote that
communciation with Fravia has been challenging. Carol sent an email
to Bryant at Sustain Dane explaning (what I knew about) the Fravia
situation (her being the nominal ambassador's scheduler). I will
forward to the group when I hear back from him.
-Any other local outreach DASA can be doing before late November?
Creating alliances? Locating rural partners?
That's what I can think of.
