    – Want more policy discussions: national and local
    – How Utah approaches the 106 and state 404 compliance process different than other states
    – DFCM mirror GSA to look at urban core and use of historic bldgs.
    – Future of Global Information Systems (GIS) and ESRI cultural resource management
    – How have State History’s mission and programs changed over the last decade?
    – What is the role of State History in the Rio Grande neighborhood?
