The cattle grazing webinar had useful information on how to use FOIA’s in order to comment on grazing allotment infractions, especially on BLM lands, which I am not as familiar with as USFS land requirements.
The lunch with our new co-leader was very useful in terms of figuring out what projects she would enjoy and times she might be available for activities. It mighthave been more useful if Linda and I had been less verbal about topics that were not necessarily related to Broadband business, but I guess Irene got to learn about us as personalities.
The Strategic planning webinar contained some surprising information – much of it useful and familiar, and some of it new news for me. My comments reflect those opinions, I would guess.
By the way, the new broadband dashboard has some changes that took me awhile to figure out. I’m still not sure what everything is – for instance, what is the Dropdown box at the bottom of the activity report page? I’m afraid to do anything with it because I don’t want it to erase what I’ve already done. And why isn’t there an option to go back to the activity report page when you go to the search or view reports page? I can use the < arrow in the top left of the search page to get back, but it takes several steps? Any reason?
