    6. Other items?

  3. Plenary Speaker update/discussion
    1. Go ahead or defer to 2020?  Seek views on having a 'proper' plenary address then?
      Long discussion.  Heidi Kolk will be asked to give a plenary, 30 minutes plus 5 minutes questions.  Invite her to discuss the content with the Program Committee.  It will be good to learn something about St Louis and there would seem to be a metaphor between her work on the history of a house and the histories we try to build with repositories.  Need to draw clear connections to make the talk relevant.  She has a teaching commitment at 11:30 so her talk must come early in the plenary.
