Rick is pleased that you rang, and is keen to share his stories about the Committee. He gives you a useful overview of the issues and history of the Committee.

Then he begins to talk about some of the Committee members. He warns you about a member named John, who he believes is only interested in pushing his own agenda. You mentally make a note to avoid getting involved in Rick's personal politics with John. 

Although you are expecting the Secretariat to make first contact, you decide to call her first, as you are about to go away for a few days.
