Dear Ms. Conner,

I'm following up to your message of October 6, 2020 where you said, "As the Board of Directors is not currently meeting, we have no meeting minutes from 2020 to provide you. When the Board meets again in person, we will provide them to you."

My request was for, "the agenda and minutes for any meeting of Amtrak's Board of Directors that occurred during the month of August 2020."

My request did not specify only the agenda and minutes of "in person" meetings of Amtrak's Board of Director's meetings.

I am assuming that at some point during 2020 Amtrak Board shifted their meetings to either teleconference or online video meetings due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

I also assume that any meeting of the Board via teleconference or online video would be an official meeting of the board, complete with an agenda and minutes for each meeting.

With all of that said, I wish to again ask again that you provide me with the agenda and minutes for any meeting of Amtrak's Board of Directors that occurred during the month of August 2020.

I look forward to you reply.

Thank you.

Ben Heckscher

There are no meeting minutes until they meet in person again. I will provide the minutes when they do so.
