those dates are problematic because of the NDC (week of October 13th)

I rescheduled the October 13th meeting to October 6th (next week)
earlier today; I'll communicate that separately and with an agenda shortly.

I would like to also reschedule the October 27th meeting for October
20th and put this paper (P2071) on its agenda.

There are no meetings scheduled for November yet because I only
scheduled through the next daylight savings time change (November 7th).
I'm planning to schedule those soon and intend to stick to our 2nd and
4th weeks of the month plan.

Please let me know ASAP about any concerns with the above.
