Dear Coordinating Committee,
I hope this email finds you all well and rested. Now that the holidays have
passed the WEC has found itself in a somewhat awkward position.
Unfortunately due to weather and the holidays there was not a draft of the
report for the Coordinating Committee to review and discuss prior to
tomorrow's full WEC meeting. Given that the Revision Committee has just
received the most current draft of the report and the proposed agenda seems
overly ambitious and has not been vetted by the Coordinating Committee, it
has been suggested that tomorrow's WEC meeting be cancelled and instead the
coordinating committee should meet instead with the following needs:
* Discuss the status of the report
* Check in with key members from the subcommittees.
* Get the coordinating committee on same page
* Map out course of action
* Discuss problems and potential issues that may come up.
Additionally, the Coordinating committee should provide the Revision
Committee a clear path to get a robust draft out well in advance of the next
meeting on January 29th. Jamie and I have discussed the need for a clear
path to the finish and that the WEC has artificial time frames and that
allows us to postpone the meeting until we have a more vetted second draft
with out wasting members' time. Additionally, we recommend that the
Coordinating Committee meet three times before the January 29th meeting to
continue to move toward consensus.
It is important that the cancellation of the meeting comes from the
Coordinating Committee so please respond ASAP to this email so we can have a
timely notice to the full WEC about the cancellation of tomorrow's meeting.
