    • Randy Levensalor would like to see more hands-on community focused interaction - small group for whitepaper make sense- should align with the EUAG's mission

    • Keep the focus on the big picture for technology direction - 
    • Active Project engagement members
      • TIM - following ONAP but not deeply involved
      • CMCC - ONAP, CVC 
      • Cable Labs - more CNCF focused, running ONAP in the lab.  Some conversations with LFEdge
      • NTTT - LF Edge engagement, but not much LFN.  Watching ONAP
