Other comments

  • Identify the geographical areas covered by the consortium (boroughs)  maybe have people sit in the regions that they serve i.e. one end of the table X , the other end Y (#4)
  • Give lists of names/email/phone #s of participants to encourage exchange throughout the meeting. No listservs (#13) 
  • A committee or secretary to keep notes about suggestions made since the consortium is in the planning stage (#17)
  • Please have everyone share their specialty or order to send referrals and their location/practice (#20)
  • Very informative, perfect amount of time per speaker, very nice atmosphere, friendly (#21)
