We know everyone is really busy at this time of year with school, graduations, sports and events, but the reality is it is hard to get everyone to sit in a boardroom for a meeting at this time of year. So we have listened and heard to what you are saying and will make this meeting short and sweet. We will also provide a limited amount of space to call in.
