Are you gathering it for the Meeting Executive event? I was going to observe because I thought you were going to see if Angie DeKleine wanted to moderate, but when I spoke to her, she hadn't been contacted. I don't want to assume anything, but I also want to understand what your expectations are for my involvement because I don't remember being asked to officially moderate.
