  • I served on EPAC for 3 years back around 2013… I was curious and spoke with Mark Brown today… The committee meeting format has changed significantly from previous non-covid years. We can expect no return to in-person monthly meetings as the 2-demensional ZOOM sessions (not real meetings) are expected to be the “new normal”.
    Almost all ZOOMS are covering the issue of “climate change/global warming. (yawn)… I suggest you talk with Mark Brown before you apply.
    EPAC Online ZOOM Meetings began last January and can be seen on youtube at:
