3 Agenda Items
- As Noted

3. TF and Supplement Status:

- Nothing to report.

4. Brief Proposals:

- John Garguilo described the Brief Proposal process and asked that members submit proposals. He indicated the “parking lot” with proposals that have been submitted but which did not garner sufficient support at the time.

5. Connectathon and Showcase:

- John described the Supportive Testing registration option.
o If there are CPs in FT, is this still a candidate? What if this still isn’t in the TF? Manny to ask Lynn.
o DEC PCD-01, PIV PCD-03 have a lengthy stable history.
o Is the registration cost the same? Does this qualify for HIMSS Showcase participation? Manny to ask Lynn.
o Are you still evaluated and results published? Manny to ask Lynn.
- Pre-Connectathon (NIST) tests:
o NIST is planning to identify the tools added for this cycle.
o NIST updated the existing tests in response to issues identified last year. John noted that the test tools may have issues and the PCD Testing Google Group is a useful place to identify and address testing process and test details.

6. October F2F:

- John Garguilo reviewed the current status, requesting that members add suggestions to the agenda on the meeting Wiki page.

7. Action Item Review:
