Hello Alain,

I should be able to attend.

There are some conflicts on Monday with a Government meeting on the same day.

I may need a little flexibility in being able to move the time a bit.

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
