Hi Mohamed,

Thanks for this email. I really want to support Aftld but to do so I  
need to understand it's purpose and have been a little puzzled at it  
for a long time. This email is certainly useful to see what you're  
thinking of but I'm still not sure.

Please can you explain or give examples of what matters of policy  
affect us regionally and what has been discussed?

Similarly, what positions do or could we have that are regional? and  
what is or could the purpose (or benefits) of having a regional body  
of the CCNSO?
