    Good start. Your challenge is to record everything in around 700 words. for example you said President announced some important aspects and closed the meeting. Instead of generalising tell us what the President has said in her closing address in very brief. Same thing applicable for Gen Evaluation as well. This is an opportunity capitalise on it.
