It was agreed to try to organize the Annual Scientific Community meeting as a hybrid meeting (physical attendance + virtual participation) in connection with the IASSIST conference in Philadelphia. Possibly on the same day as the Annual Meeting of Members.
Hilde and Darren will meet with Bill and Jared to plan further.
