I'm sorry to hear that. The reason for suggesting a whole day (or
close to a whole day) session was that it sounds like we won't be able
to have a Board meeting at OKFestival -- a meeting at that event plus
the board meeting would provide an opportunity for lengthier and more
substantial discussion. In previous years we have tried the whole-day
meeting quite successfully. Nevertheless I understand the constraints
on board members time and wonder whether people would be able to make
a half-day if they cannot make a full day.

In terms of this meeting I think the major things we would be looking
at (that warrant the additional time) would be:

* Strategy - what are we doing, what should be doing, what structures
do we need in place
* Chapters and Local Groups
* Review of the last year
