1. Planning for the 2009 pre-conference workshop is under way. Currently, the ETC is in the process of selecting a program committee and deciding on the workshop format. It is hoped that this year's workshop will be more interactive, and include an introductory syndromic surveillance lecture at the beginning of the day. This year, the workshop will be held off-site at the Miami Dade County Health Department.

2. As a collaboration with the Global Outreach Committee, Larissa May is working to make an ISDR training tool and a surveillance cost tool available to the Society.
