Harold felt that at a future meeting, we should reach clarity on instructions to ops in regards to use of languages other than English in the room. The speaker felt that both view points, that English only should be used, or that it enhances the room to have various languages used, are sincerely held viewpoints. Nancy also addressed the issue of language in the room, feeling that to uphold the first tradition is to in the case of our room, insist that only English be used in the room.
