We will use Twitter during the meeting to facilitate discussions among large numbers of participants.
Please signup for Twitter and participate - you can delete the account after the meeting.

You can tweet during the town meeting to contribute a comment or a question. We will collect tweets by topic and make them available to the working groups to deal with them.

This is a mechanism to deal with limited discussion time and allow a broader audience to provide input. If you want to ask a question or comment, and there is no time in the discussion session, please just tweet.

Go to Twitter

  • iPhone: download Twitter app, sign in or get an account
