I have posted a powerpoint presentation that includes my speaking notes for the conference panel at the International RCE Conference held in Penang, Malaysia, on August 7 and 8, 2007 in the documents section of the website (see "RCE Project Documents" tab at top of this page). RCE Saskatchewan was one of 4 RCEs profiled on the panel (along with RCE Penang, RCE Nairobi, and RCE Barcelona) to the 35 RCEs and 15 new RCEs applying at the conference. In addition I have posted presentations from RCE Penang that was hosting the event.
