Do you all plan to provide any web-based presentation for people who may not be able to attend in person?

No, it is not cost effective to archive webcasts of the summits.  The data presentation is individualized for the counties or counties where the summit is being hosted and the permanency presentations match the posted powerpoints already posted here.  However, our office is happy to send any materials from any county where a summit has taken place and the summits are open to the public.
