Hi Michelle,

Portico has had a chance to look over the organizing documents and to our mind they have come together very well and certainly adhere to the spirit of the discussions held during the workshop.  As such, we have no comments to add at this time other than our congratulations for a job well done.

Subject: [NDSA-ALL] Principles of Collaboration

Dear NDSA Members:

Over the last 3 months, members of the NDSA have volunteered their time and insight  and developed the organizing documents of the Alliance. These Principles of Collaboration; Membership Eligibility; and Mission, Action and Values Statements will help the NDSA as it grows over the coming years.

Please find these materials attached for your review. You may also review them on the NDSA wiki:

Please make your comments or suggestions either via email to me, Michelle Gallinger at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>,  or on the wiki ( no later than Friday, February 18, 2011. We will incorporate your comments and suggestions and then send the revised materials to be voted on. These documents will help us organize how the Alliance will work together moving forward.

Many thanks to all the members of the Organizing Committee for their thoughtful work. I very much look forward to the comments from all NDSA members during the next two weeks.

Best regards,
