I agree that taking the time to list what sessions ICANN is organising
at IGF is not a good use of our limited time and I propose that we have
a WIKI page created for this and just point participants to that WIKI
page, linked from the Agenda. In this section, focussing on items that
are likely to affect ICANN is wise.

There is an increased focus on the SDGs which does make it somehow hybrid.

JImson Olufuye will be attending ICANN63, and will also be part of the
delegation from Nigeria to the ITU. I wonder if anyone in our group
would be on a delegation? For example Jim Prendergast? Or you could
suggest anyone else too?

It's a hot topic at present and since we have the chance of having its
secretariat ready to give some information about it, it's an opportunity.

Good point. But then we probably have to be more strategic about these
things. The current Damocles sword hanging over this group doesn't help,
though, but I would hope that with a confirmation from SOs/ACs that they
support the proposed CCEG, we can start anew and be more ambitious when
it comes to inviting speakers.

Once we get into CCEG mode, I am hoping it will be a different state of
