Langdon suggested forming a committee to examine each category of issues and suggest resolution.
Tischbein thought the list was excellent and suggested it be handed out to new members as a way of introducing them to the work of the organization.

Krieg asked members of the Executive Committee to give him their rankings at the end of the meeting or transmit by e-mail in the very near future.
