Specifically, a significant number of CSRIC members have made business and travel plans to attend the CSRIC meeting on December 3; there is no other date within one month of December 3, 2015, that will accommodate CSRIC members' schedules; and delaying the meeting will also cause undue financial burdens on many of the CSRIC members who have made travel arrangements.
