Meeting Cancellations – Labor Day Meetings and D&I

Quick point of note if you were planning to attend the Monday App Ecosystem Working Group, the Monday Web Content, or the Wednesday D&I Working Group meetings. These have all been canceled for this week, so if you show up, you’ll be talking to yourself. 🙂
