Hi Charlie,

Regrets, I could not attend today.
I agree that the global HCLS calls should be "on" by default.
The task force calls, however, may require a bit more preparation from the
chairs and as such, may need further confirmation on whether they will
happen or not... I was hoping that with this new system all I had to do was
manage this in the google calendar, which I did. What went wrong with the
calendar of the global HCLS call today?

Best,
Lena
