Reports

We are requesting that all Community, Workgroup and Trusted Servant reports be emailed no later than one month before the start of the Feb 26th meeting – so by the 25th of January. The community reporting template can be downloaded from the apfna.org website here:

At the 2014 APF meeting, we agreed by consensus to allow all delegates the opportunity to have read reports in preparation for the meeting, as pre-reading reports keeps all participants up to date and informed, and this practice improves communications.

We also agreed at that time that we could reduce waste, and so is not necessary to bring hard copies of reports to the APF meeting, since delegates will have the report electronically, or if required can print and bring their own copy.
