    Jacquie, was nice to see your comments here and also to remember your presentation in Ottawa. Pleasure meeting you, wish we had strong dedicated planners like you in our government.

    What you said about diversity and the different perspectives to deal with common problems is really the biggest asset of the Network, in my opinion. Add to that the confidentiality and informality of the atmosphere created by this small group and we really have some very interesting learning opportunities.

    Hope all is well back home, Luis says hello!
    Best regards from Curitiba-Brazil
