Welcome to the CCE Blog - Action Plan Draft

Currently, this is a closed blog, meaning that only those invited can view the blog. All of you who are seeing this blog, if you create a google account, will be able not only to reply to postings (that's a common feature of any blog), but you will also be able to draft your own postings. For instance, Diane S., you should post those goals that we started to discuss at the meeting today. Lena, if you want to post your job description/tasks for the rest of the crew to review, you can do that, too.

Here are my contributions:
