as a proposal, I'm copying here the current draft Mar del Plata schedule
from the ICANN website, and interleaving proposals for our meeting.
Denise - please check and tell us whether there is any other meeting that
is not there yet but is being organized (i.e. a Strategic Plan event?).
Also, other members (e.g. Roberto) should comment on any overlapping
commitments they might already have.
Given the schedule, I'd recommend that we all arrive at last by Sunday
evening and leave not earlier than Thursday evening.
Please comment! I did this very quickly, maybe I forgot something.

* GAC Working Groups (Closed Session)
* Wwtld Meeting
Sunday, 3 April 2005
* Morning Tea with Staff & Board (10:00 . 11:00)
* Orientation (11:00 . 12:00)
* GAC Regional Forum (afternoon)
I have been asked by GAC officers whether we would like to participate in
an At Large related panel during their Regional Forum, as we already did
in Rome and other meetings. I think it's a good idea, so if we agree I
would ask our Latin American members to take part in the organization of
this thing. It's not necessary for all of us to attend, though.

* ccNSO Members Meeting
* Registrars Workshop (All Day)
* GAC Plenary Meeting (Open Session)
* GAC Plenary Meeting (Closed Session)
* Host Reception
I am not sure about what the Registrars Workshops will be, but unless it
turns out to be really interesting (the Cape Town one wasn't, for a number
of reasons) I'd use Monday (after 10am) as a full day for our own internal
Optimally, we could try to "book" Twomey for a quick meeting at any time
during this day. Also, do we want to get some longer staff briefing on the
Strategic Plan or anything else?

* WSIS Program (4:00 . 7:00)
We could use this day for the usual public joint meeting with the NCUC (if
no one objects, I'll ask Milton about a possible timeslot). Also, the WSIS
event is mandatory. Perhaps we could use two hours on this day for our
public Regional At Large meeting?

# GNSO Council Meeting (morning)
# ccNSO Council Meeting (afternoon)
# Public Forum . Part 1 (afternnon)
This day is already filled up. We might want to meet internally during the
GNSO Council meeting, assuming that we need it and that it's not a problem
to "lose" our GNSO liaison.
