Dear Bruce,

NPOC would like to invite you as one of 4 panelists for one of its event in
Toronto. Here is the event description:


*Session Title*: *The Impact of new generic Top Level Domains on NGO’s *(90
minutes between 9-12:30 or 14:00-16:00)

*Overview:* NGO’s and NFP´s depend on the Internet for large parts of their
work, communication and fundraising. There is currently much talk about the
introduction of new generic Top Level Domain names for the Internet through
ICANN, but what does this mean in everyday practice for NGOs around the
world?  A panel of eminent Experts/Specialists will answer questions from
NGOs about "The impact of new gTLDs on NGOs/NFPs"...no presentations, no
power points - just an armchairs or high-chairs discussion setting,

*Agenda*: After a very short introductory of the experts and a 5-minute
overview, giving a quick explanation about the upcoming domain name
changes, the participants will have the chance to ask the questions they
always wanted to ask but didn’t know who to ask.

Remote participants will connect live to the event.

Preference will be given to questions sent ahead by remote participants as
well as to written questions by participants in the room.

*Who should attend:* Officers and staff from NGOs and NFPs,either in the
room or by remote participants.

*Promotional Strategy:*
This event will be promoted broadly through the NPOC and Global Knowledge
Partnership Foundation sites as well as their members' websites.
Participants will be invited to submit questions before the event and
participate live. Priority will be given to remote participants and to
written questions submitted ahead of time.

*Please submit your written questions to Andrei Barburas at  <

*Connection details for the event:*

Adobe Connect - details forthcoming

Bruce, I hope you will accept this invitation. Please respond soonest
convenient; please copy Marie-laure, as she is the NPOC events' Planner and
Coordinator. Marie-laure will advise on who the other 3 experts are as
confirmations come in.

Warm regards, Alain
