: At a previous
Executive Committee meeting, President Barchi
said that there would be interim reports from those two committees, and
that the EC could communicate directly with them, perhaps inviting them
to attend an EC meeting. An email was been sent to both committees'
co-chairs asking if interim reports are available, or, if not, when
those reports may be available for the EC to review. Linda Brzustowicz
responded to that email as follows: "We are not scheduled to produce an
interim report until summer 2015."
