The next AFP Steering Committee meeting will be held on Friday October 28th from 10:30 AM to 12 noon by conference call (800) 503-2899 code: 5526619#. 
The purpose of this meeting is to discuss next steps with the state team and the national partners.  Specifically:
  1. What will the next state team meeting look like, will it be in person, video conference, conference call, combination, etc?
  2. What�s the �word on the street� about the conference results and follow-up reports?
  3. What support from the national partners would be helpful for our state team?
  4. What type of ongoing communication and direction would help us in achieving your goals?
  5. What would we like AFP to be doing to help connect with other state teams?
The AFP Founders will be meeting on November 1st.  They will discuss next steps for state teams, including how they can support us as we continue our Pre-Summit and DC Summit work.  I would like to be able to forward our thoughts on the above questions to assist them in their next meeting. 
If you have suggestions for agenda items please forward to me by Tuesday October 25, 2005 and I�ll send out a final agenda by the next day.
Thank you all for your continued work on Full Participation.
