  1. Talk of the Nation transition—PRIMA member stations are making their plans with the various programming options and making plans for implementation and promotion of new programs.
  1. US:A Survey regarding collaborations—Sent to member stations last week. Questions have to do with collaborations between stations and national organizations as a follow-up to discussion at Super Regional meeting in New Orleans. Discussion followed about the challenges of collaborating whether by mergers or on specific initiatives or functional areas. Chair Kuzmych asked whether perhaps rather than focus on mergers, CPB should facilitate collaboration in digital media and/or IT similar to NPR Digital Services.
