[CVEPRI] Teleconference on September 27, 2-4 PM Eastern

The next CVE Editorial Board teleconference will be held on Thursday,
September 27, from 2 to 4 PM Eastern Standard Time (6 to 8 GMT).

Below are the details for dialing into the teleconference, followed by
an agenda.  Note that there will be a brief discussion of MITRE's
technology transfer activities, some of which involve information
security.  We believe that some Board members might want to be aware
of these activities, which is why I'm making a special note of it

Phone Number: 877-918-3010  (toll free in USA, and possibly Canada)
