Thanks Joe for your comprehensive description.

As to the role I fully accept and don't see anything missing.

Re the numbers of co-chairs I think 2 is good but necessary. Whether to call 
them co- or alternate chairs doesn't really matter as long as they share the 

I was very much satisfied with Alissa navigating us through the London 
meeting, thank her for hwer willingness to serve as chair and join others 
having already expressed support for her.

Best regards

I would ask members to use the time frames requested to both comment on 
numbers as well as on the description of thr role.  I would also ask that if 
we go with one chair we have some form of backup if the one chair can not 
make a meeting.

I think Mary has spoken very wise words here. It is a pity that we have
been too far down a rat-hole to hear her when she said this during the
meeting. Maybe we can take the chance to heed her advice now.

I, for one, completely agree with her.

I also believe Alissa did an outstanding job preparing and running the
meeting. We should we look further?
