Social distancing will be enforced


~ Groups are assigned separate meeting areas (up to 16 available)


~ 10-12 members per group with one rep per closet company


~ One moderator and two note takers are assigned to each table

~ Different aspects of main topic are suggested and listed on a  display board, none are rejected  


~ Members vote on order of importance categorizing
      A - most interest to discuss
      B - moderately important
      C - we'll cover this if we have time
