1. Literature Committee working format

  • We will move the detailed discussion of working drafts on-line, using collaboration software, and use subcommittee calls to resolve issues
  • For the time being, we will make use of Google docs; we will also look at using the collaboration software under review by the GSB
  • Discussion on committee calls will be limited to progress reports and yes/no decisions on whether drafts are ready to move further along the approval process

2. Current Initiatives

  • It was agreed that we would limit ourselves to working on two initiatives at a time.
  • The committee reviewed the status of current initiatives; we will focus on the following two:
    • “Accountability Teams” one page introduction

  • The following initiatives have been placed on hold:
    • “Underearning & Our Thinking”
