Single Constituency Day.

1. If we can't pick just 1, 2 max... but I think it's easier to pick 1 than 2 to 5. Usually there is something that stands out. 
For all other HIT slots: PDP WGs and IRTs from the 3 SOs. 

(3) Any thoughts on the best way to solicit topics for HIT sessions, and how to choose the top 5?

SO/AC Leadership. 

> (4) Similarly, any thoughts on how to address the inevitable conflicts between working sessions and HITs?

Having less so-called HITs. Avoid conflicts with PDP WGs and IRTs.

> (5) Any other specific feedback you’d like us to bring to the SO/AC meeting

When in doubt, make meeting A more like meeting B than meeting C.
