DCAD Extra Ordinary Meeting - March 2 2023
JUDITH HELLERSTEIN

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening to everyone here. Thanks so much for coming to this call. I also wanted to mention that I seem to be having a problem with one of my email servers that sends out email, so I had problems sending out reminders to this, which I try to duly send out, last night and this morning, but hopefully, that won't be a problem.

And also, on that email, I had put forward my nomination for Dr. Shabbir to be our coordinator for the DCAD. And so, I think that's also what I put out. Thanks. Dr. Shabbir?

MUHAMMAD SHABBIR

Thank you, Judith. Thank you very much. Hi, everyone. This is Dr. Muhammad Shabbir speaking, for the record. Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, everyone, from wherever you have joined us in this Extra Ordinary Meeting of the Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability. My personal thanks to all of those who have joined, though we have quite a small number.

First, we will do a quick roll call. You just have to say your name, your affiliation, and a couple of sentences, if you want to say about yourself.

ANDREA SAKS

Dr. Shabbir, Lidia's hand is up.

MUHAMMAD SHABBIR

I will do the housekeeping after roll call.

JUDITH HELLERSTEIN

Lidia?

MUHAMMAD SHABBIR

If you have something to say prior to the roll call? Or you can go first even.

LIDIA BEST

Okay. Good morning, afternoon, evening, whoever, you know, what time you are on. First of all, actually, we should have an acceptance on the agenda. We should have for our minutes, but who, if anybody has objections or whatsoever, so we move on with our agenda. I believe nobody has objections, unless somebody does. And then we can move on with Dr. Shabbir and the roll call. Thank you!

JUDITH HELLERSTEIN

Oh, okay. I thought, Shabbir, I thought you usually do the agenda after the roll call. But that's fine.
