I would like to propose a 2nd topic for the Board dinner (I believe the custom initiated by Avri was to have 2 topics).

As we saw yesterday from our discussions during the Council meeting, there is a danger of staff being overloaded by the current workload. And as I pointed out, my worry is more for us volunteers that have to balance an extremely demanding ICANN workload, for which we are neither paid nor compensated in any way, with our real lives and jobs. So I guess there comes a point where the question must be asked: is a system based on so much volunteer involvement viable in the long run, and if we want to keep the system as is (with the obvious benefits of being truly multi stakeholder), what solutions are there to make it viable (for example, more staff as Mike suggested yesterday)?
