Latest update March 24th 2020.

Please note the agenda is shorter than the usual time for CFMS meetings. Unfortunately we are unable to facilitate many of the small group and other interactive parts of the meeting. However, we will be using an interactive web platform and have some additional new sessions to spark engagement. As usual a PRT, RRT and ART meeting will be scheduled around this time. Details on those meetings and their agendas are to follow.
