    Marg,

     

    I’m sorry I won’t be there in Anaheim but I’d really love to hear (and have a follow-up conversation) on these two topics in particular:

      • Fruitless haggling with vendors
      • What about a common template for public institutions to address common interests?

    We have a template agreement we have been working on and would like to share with others and compare notes.

     

    Loren
