    A very good transition announcement ACBDA.

    How are the other committees structured and who is leading and participating on each? I ask as they represent our Bermuda variable in the AC35 event equation.

    What are their specific terms of reference, budgets and how are they representative of our Bermuda Community in our complexity and diversity?
