Brenna shared information about the Google Docs program where information could be shared and replies sent back to one person.  Downfall would be that we would not see other’s comments, Upside would be that it would reduce the number of emails received by individuals.  Discussion, followed by a decision to continue to send requests out through email as sometimes someone’s comments influence others decisions.
