Any person interested in providing feedback may do so either in person or by email. The following protocol will govern the feedback meetings:

• If you want to provide feedback in person, you must limit your comments to no longer than three minutes in order to allow time for each person to fully express their comments. Although not required, we suggest you prepare written comments and use the written comments to ensure your complete message is heard. A timekeeper will ensure everyone has the full three minutes to speak.

• You may also submit your written comments by leaving a paper copy at the registration desk.

• While any individual may attend any or all of the feedback meetings, you must decide which meeting you want to share comments in person. Allowing individuals to speak at only one feedback session gives everyone an opportunity to have their voice heard.

If you prefer to provide written comments, you may do so by emailing your comments to
