Ron reported on the results of the member survey of views of returning to in-person meetings. There were
12 members ready to return to in-person meetings immediately, 4 who would not return primarily because
they preferred Zoom, 2 who who wanted to wait because of Covid reasons, and 1 who did not want to
belong to the group at all.
