Ms. Jensen:

I have received the disc you sent with responsive documents. Thank you for sending. A couple of clarifications:

While you've provided what seem to be the speaker's presentation notes, you have not provided the actual slide presentation itself. Please send these in their native (.ppt or .pptx, I would assume, or similar presentation) format?

With regard to audio/video, my request covered both audio/video materials provided/played during the webinar as well as audio/video recorded of the webinar itself. With regard to audio/video as part of the webinar, the notes you've sent indicate (p. 43 of PDF, handwritten p. 42 of notes) that at least one video was played: "Domicopter Video" was either mentioned, played as an embedded object within the slides or played in some other fashion. Please provide this video.

With regard to an audio/video recording of the webinar, two of the participants requests this very material in the chat transcript (PDF p. 88) request an audio recording. If recordings were made of the webinar, please send these, as well.

Finally, with regard to a list of participants, the email of chat transcript as well as possibility for participants to download a certificate of attendance both indicate that FLETC has a record of which individuals (and feasibly agencies) participated in this webinar. Whether a registration roster or other means, I reiterate my request that you provide the most comprehensive account within FLETC's possession of agencies/individuals that participated.
