> Hi All,
> As you may have noticed from lack of traffic on our mailing list, we are
> struggling with getting our volunteer’s time and attention these days. I am
> quite proud we made as much forward progress as we did in January and early
> February but we seem to be in ever-increasing conflict with the many effects
> of the new TLD application period. As you know I’ve talked with a number of
> you and we’ve collectively talked on the call about the immense work load
> many are under at the moment. We lost one of our co-chairs to this issue
> This is an exceptional time in our industry but I believe that once the
> applications are in there will be a period where people are more available
> again. The approval and processing period of the applications provides us
> with some respite – although we will all have our regular “day” jobs still.
> As I result I suggest we suspend our efforts until April 16th when we would
> reinitiate our meetings. At this point I think we can accelerate again and
> make up for the lost time. Our recent new approach is more efficient and will
> just a little time from our volunteers, I believe we can catch up to our
> original intended schedule (in terms of results).
> My question to the group is, do you agree this is a practical suggestion or
> do you wish to suggest another alternative?
> Wendy, if the group agrees, we would ask you to communicate this schedule
> adjustment to the council on our behalf.
> Thanks everyone.
> Best Regards,
> Michael Young
