Duh Marilyn

I am sorry.  I will re-read and come back with some better ideas.

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.

Best wishes.

Perhaps we can have a quick 'Poll' from the list about members who are planning to attend one or both outreach sessions. [I've given up on attending HK and Abu Dabai, however].

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.
