  • Morale being low within the membership; how are we going to bring this up at the LMCC? Example is the lack of participants on the spill team.
  • The suggestion box so far as we know for any negative feedback has yet to be addressed by management. Is it possible there have not been any negative comments/concerns submitted?
  • The President quickly talked about the Org Chart; will people still be moved? Are any moves or mention of moves leading to low morale?
  • The President is encouraging all who attend the LMCC meetings to participate more and not leave the discussions up to the Chair and Vice-chair.
