Alan asked Geri Hadley to make a few opening remarks. Alan and Geri started working to organize this panel in the Spring of 2014. Yes, this panel session took almost 1 full year from conception to full production on April 1, 2015. It required multiple email exchanges, phone calls, and two 3+ hour planning sessions to narrow down and agree on the subject matter to be discussed in the limited time (1.5 hours) we had for this session. As always, the panel was followed by a spirited and incisive audience Q&A for ~1/2 hour.
