Setting A Common Agenda

With over 30 organizations attending all three meetups, we discussed with local organizers trying to build toward a common approach to these meetups to make consolidating findings and summary easier. 

This was made very apparent when over 35 people planned to attend the East Coast one. So with the time available, it is clear we cannot cover every topic in 1 day and provide time for large groups to ask questions. So can we arrive at a common agenda for 2020?

We are trying to align a common approach to all regional meeting agendas. With the delay, we have time to expand the feedback (8 furniture banks voted so far) on what should be discussed. Please complete this form to help guide us.
