Thank you.
Could we possibly ask that people not embed comments in a PDF?
Cheers, Claire

Subject: [rdacovid19-coordination] Updates and Requests
Dear COVID-19 Co-chairs and Moderators,
First of all, I would like to welcome Natalie Harrower to this group. Natalie has been added as a COVID-19 co-chair and is supporting the editorial team.
A few highlights/requests for you:
1. A reminder to the moderators to send me an email with the specific expertise that you are seeking in your group so I can send a call to the community and beyond.
2. Please send any highlights of the content you would like to focus on during next week’s webinar as soon as possible so that we can raise awareness and promote to the members and community
3. Request for Comments: with the Secretariat and web development team we are discussing eventual plausible solutions to enhance the RfC features and functionalities on the RDA web platform. We are looking to identify a solution that would be implemented in time for the Pre Final Release on 22 May. In the meantime, we have activated the attachment facility so that people (like Alan Paic) can upload commented versions of the pdf if they so wish.
Do let me know if anything is unclear and thank you all so much for your work and support
Hilary Hanahoe
