Liz, I am proposing NOT to use those dates. I am not at all sure that was clear
after reading your email.
I think it may be very unfair to try to have a face to face meeting unless lots
of time is allowed for people to plan. for instance, I can't be in NYC, travel
to London for 15th, and then travel back on the 16th.
It is a burden for me to fund the travel in any case, and I can't really
envision paying for an extra night's hotel for a face to face meeting. And,
also, frankly, I can't really afford to donate a full week to just ICANN. I'd
suspect I am not alone in that last issue.
So, to be clearer -- I don't believe that using a date within the same time
frame is really feasible for someone like me, who will most likely have to be
at both meetings, and has to travel back and forth very quickly.

Thanks for this -- very helpful.
I will set up a Doodle poll and we can then save on trading emails back and
forward around the two dates you've suggested in the London and NYC new TLDs
events. That seems to be when people will cluster.

I would then propose to eliminate the following dates as possible meeting
dates:Due to the high percentage of US members [from my review of the list of
members on the website], we need to avoid 7/3, which will be a holiday for many
in the US.
I would propose to put the entire week of 7/10-7/16 OFF LIMITS, due to the two
outreach meetings on the four overarching issues.
For myself, I am not available 7/24, nor 7/29.
August is a much better time to try to get a several hour meeting, if we
schedule now, and while I know that many take holiday much of that month, I
wonder if I can propose that we try to identify a date early in August as one
of the options, at least for the second interaction with the full membership.
