Fortunately, this is just me updating them on some information and the TC's boss will be there, along with other people I trust, so this should be pretty straightforward. However, I never like to underestimate people's ability to say something stupid at any given moment.
Now, at this meeting we will be scheduling another meeting to go over Ava's needs. The likelihood of things going diplomatically awry will be much higher at that meeting.
