3. CBA Negotiations. Next article (on leave) is being undertaken.

4. Meeting with Acting Director. President R. will meet with Mary M. on June 30. Are there questions or concerns? (Maybe ask about the debt ceiling problem.) The meet and greet went well; maybe we’ll have others.

5. Two-Factor Authentication. The process starts tomorrow; the best bet appears to be to use a cell phone and text to get the password.

6. Other. President R. distributed a useful handout on impact and implementation.
(Also, the Communications team questions about the CREA Cafe were mentioned; we haven’t forgotten!)
