Establish Regional conferencing and Televideo centers for use by federal agencies. When a national meeting is organized, participants can travel to a nearby locaton that is connected to other televidio centers. This would combine the benefits of meeting face-to-face with a subset of participants while reducing travel costs as well as the cost of renting conference facilities. The centers coud have a set-up that also accomodates televideo-based breakout groups for discussions.
