UPDATE 10:00am from Dr. Nancy Lee:
Because of a snow storm in the Washington DC area, the Federal Office of Personnel Management has closed all federal govt. offices in DC. This includes the tech support we need for webinars.
Unfortunately, we cannot have the webinar today. Additionally, we cannot get the CFSAC website updated today.
We will have the webinar tomorrow (Wed. Dec. 11) beginning at noon ET, IF govt. offices are open. Dr Gailen Marshall, the CFSAC Chair, will work with the committee members at the beginning of the webinar to modify the agenda to accommodate the compressed timeframe.
We will have public comment tomorrow for those who were scheduled to speak on Wed. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to accommodate the public comments that were scheduled for Tuesday because we cannot confirm with the speakers that they are available for the Wednesday time slot.
So that we have more time for the Committee to deliberate and discuss, we ask those providing public comment tomorrow to limit their speaking time to 3 minutes.
If we must cancel the webinar tomorrow (DC doesn’t handle snowy, icy roads well), we will reschedule the CFSAC meeting webinar to occur after the first of the year.

DUE TO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CLOSURE, THE WEBINAR WILL NOT HAPPEN TODAY, DECEMBER 10TH. THEY HOPE TO HAVE THE DECEMBER 11TH MEETING AS SCHEDULED.
I’ll share more information as soon as I have it.
The CFS Advisory Committee will meet via webinar on December 10th and 11th, from 12 to 5pm. In a very last minute change, CFSAC has announced that the webinar will be accessible to the general public even if you did not register.
