Information and data[edit]

In-person discussions and email discussions tended to include a large amount of information

Meetup conversations were not recorded verbatim - however general summaries were kept

Information from the survey included material relevant to streams outside of the strategy cycle and of direct relevance to the Australian community and chapter - and the detail will be reported as such separately.
