Panel members will both share their own issues and ideas, while also reflecting back or building on what they just heard. Then Anthony will speak, primarily responding to what he's heard, while also sharing some of his priorities and ideas. We are in the process of confirming the panelists and will announce them shortly, so stay tuned.
