International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    It seems like it is a teleconference only. This would be the first time that an in-person meeting would not be videocast. They didn't warn us about this - but who is surprised?

    CFSAC - If the meeting is teleconference (and slides) and if one only has one phone, how can one listen if one has to have a phone line available for public comment?

    Just started. The audio is through the phone. On the computer, are only slides. There is no visual of the meeting.

    This is so confusing - because I have no idea who is talking!!! They see each other - but we don't see them. This is ridiculous.

    They don't seem to even have a quorum. They are 6 or 7 in the room. 4 needs to approve for motions to pass

    They only have 6 voting members present for the meeting. They are discussing whether they have enough for quorum. They decided yes - because right now there are only 7 active voting members.
