The original MOU expires at the end of June 2020. Members of the Leadership team discussed the scale of revision of the MOU the result of which was an agreement to wait until after November/December for any strategic changes as we'll be in a better position to understand the basis of funding.
Agreed to make small changes now (Kristi) and appoint a Working Group (Nov / Dec 2020) to consider a broader revision.
Lyrasis organisational update
Laurie delivered the update on behalf of Robert. Unfortunately, due to challenges of this current economic situation Lyrasis has made the sad decision to let go a number of individuals, including a highly respected member of the Marketing team [NB I've omitted the name of this individual for reasons for reasons of privacy; please do add it if appropriate]. Members of Leadership acknowledged their contribution and expressed regret at this parting.
