Trustees and LC,

As we have discussed in your respective meetings, we are making efforts to
improve communications and to make it easier for KI Members to report back
the activities of Kantara to your full organization and partners.  Consider
this the first of monthly reports which captures highlights, news and
events in a clear and simple way that you can share!  FYI this report is
supplemental to the Newsletter Dervla publishes and is meant to be more
concise for sharing with colleagues and peers.

Please send feedback to advise - if you find this style and report helpful,
if I've missed some items/category which should be included, any other
suggestions for formatting, optimization and improvement.

Again - please so share this info with your colleagues and peers as you see

Thanks = Joni
