- priorities need updating

Review of Planning Information priorities:
  1. Strategies: We should check back every three months or so to verify timelines and progress.
  2. Translation and localization: is a high priority and we need to leverage our resources to forward this. Stability is needed as more translations are added.
  3. Events Calendar/Coverage High priority - In progress
  4. Baseline Data on Web Accessibility Regular - In progress - staring to happen through liaison with the Web Characterization Activity. Judy is the lead on this. Has to update this section. WL - is there a formal federal agency role in this? JB - more likely a non-governmental group. Will make this a high priority.
  5. Impact Assessment Regular priority - In progress - how do we want to analyze, what questions must be asked? WL - has any consideration been given to getting a clipping service. JB - with Sally Khudari's departure, this has fallen apart and Judy must get it working again.
