* Today's call focusing on K-12 federation issues, which has been raised often on these calls. Interested in gauging interest in the area and whether participants wish to hold specific calls dedicated to this topic, or perhaps have a spin-off group that reports back.
* Mark Scheible has been asked to lead us in a discussion on the topics we may wish to consider.

* Don't want to turn people off by restricting this to K-12. Instead, focusing on issues that apply to K-20 federations.
* Plan on going through what NC State encountered as they went about forming a K-20 federation.
* the participants included both public and private, community colleges and school districts. MCNC sponsored the task force looking into this.
