Thanks Chaitanya


But .if we are going to go for a solo participant then I think it should be
someone who is going to Durban who can firstly feed back to us after this
initial introduction, and then follow up on what is discussed with others,
in later meetings in Durban.


Unfortunately I can't go to the Durban meeting. But thanks for the nice
reference, C!  


Perhaps Dev and/or Ali ?  Do you think the powers-that-be will allow TWO
people to attend J. (Its always good to be able to go to meetings where you
have to feed back info, with a buddy). Test the boundaries !

I vote Maureen should attend this on our behalf. 


Her depth of knowledge and experience means she will fulfill the key
criteria for which this meeting is being held (viz providing Nora an update
on activities and status) and be able to grasp everything discussed and
transfer that wealth of knowledge to us.

Only one of these can attend, since Chaitanya has bowed out, that leaves 5.
I would suggest discussing it amongst yourselves and confirming the name
ASAP to Gisella.
