Further, Verdant indicates that it held two joint agency meetings (on January 8, 2019 and May 16, 2019), the second of which was held for federal agencies that were unable to attend the January meeting due to the funding lapse at certain federal agencies between December 22, 2018, and January 25, 2019.
