Arrangements have already been made to support this group. Rob Hoggarth is staffing it and Glen is setting up an email list. All groups eligible to participate (that we haven't heard from)  are being contacted for designated representatives.

Philip thanks for getting the ball rolling.

I agree we need to get to this right away.

I will be he Nomcom Appointee member of the group.

I understand that the staff has yet to pick the staff person who will
be assigned to work with this group.

Once we know who all of the members from constituencies and AC's in
liasion are, we can start to arrange a schedule.  I agree that we
should have a first conversation next week and that a face to face
meeting would be useful if we can find a time/place that fits
everyones availability.

It makes sense for Glen to set up a mailing list for this group as
soon as possible.
