Hilary – will we still be inviting members to join the group in tomorrow’s broadcast?
I’m assuming so, so taking that into consideration, I reworked the announcement a bit to focus on that “call” towards the top of the announcement. I also tightened up the paragraph on the objective and a few other sentences.
Hopefully, that’s what you had in mind.
Sara, Alex, Marieke – feel free to provide additional edits if you feel necessary.

Hi Sara
Thanks, before doing a public broadcast of the group (if that could be scheduled for tomorrow afternoon), I wanted to ensure that we have some experts invited, included there ratherthan just an empty shell
Could you & the comms teams work on some text to create an announcement from the text in the google doc –
Let me know if tomorrow afternoon is feasible?
many thanks
