Dear SSR2 Review Team:

I would like to echo what Geoff said and put my complaints on the record about being excluded from both the meeting with SSAC yesterday and this ad-hoc meeting with basically zero prior notice time.

I found out about SSAC meeting much later after the meeting happened, by word of mouth. This morning I had to be in a meeting and make a short presentation and the notice (which I saw only 15 minutes after it was posted, since it was sent over e-mail) did not leave any room for me to make arrangements and find a replacement presenter.

I also have to state that I do not agree with urgency as a reason for this style of communication and leadership. I expect SSR2 RT leadership to promote a calm approach, to stand by important principals of openness, transparency and inclusiveness and in-case additional time is needed for proper call of a team meeting, liaise with involved parties (in this case SO/AC Leadership and Board) to explain time constraints and get additional time to organise, instead of setting these type of ad-hoc meetings and excluding members, including the ones who have to join remotely. 

Needless to say, any gathering of SSR2 team members, where the topic of discussion is SSR2 matters should be considered as a SSR2 meeting and should follow inclusiveness rules, expected for any meeting of the review team.

All the best,

> I am sorry to sound like a broken record Denise, but calling a SSR2 meeting with ZERO notice is yet another instance of my issues with this leadership style. I would like to request some level of due notice and efforts for inclusion of all team members on the part of leadership, as without it I believe that you cannot subsequently represent any outcome as being representative in any form or fashion of the SSR2 team.
> As I have already noted here, my conversations with the SSAC chairs last night indicated that there was no expectation of any subsequent communication from SSR2 so I am confused that there are different reports of outcomes from presumably the same meeting. Perhaps this is illustrative of the perils of undertaking such informal “get togethers” as becoming a source of further dysfunctionality rather than resolving them.
