Rachel and all,


I agree with Maye’s suggestions. 


Though the proposed draft agenda is already loaded, may I also suggest that we introduce the discussions around the IIC (Improving Institutional Confidence) which the PSC of Icann has been developing.


Best regards


Pierre Dandjinou

Thanks to those who have replied so far and I hope more agree with Maye and others that we need to meet and also need an agenda-- so those who have items for discussions should also put them forward.

Remember, ICANN's meeting takes place before  AfriNIC 9 meeting and before IGF:

I offer the following agenda items (non exhaustive list and subject to approval by offered volunteers :-):

Victor/Mouhamet on Registrar and issues of transfer
Michuki Mwangi on AfTLD and ADRP workshop in Cairo
AR Inne on ICANN IIC and outreach for region
Lillian Sharpley/Adiel on AfriNIC 9
Pierre O  on AfCybersec 2008 meeting 
Fatimata Sylla on IGF 
Glen de St Gery (if she can) on GNAO update since we do not have any GNSO council member from the region

Hello All, 

Thank you Mrs. Anne Rachel for your concern, yes, we definitely need a room during the Cairo meeting, especially that sometimes it is hard to gather all the different African participants in one place due to the schedule. I would like to add my voice to Maye Diop's. Thursday should be fine.

Dear Anne,

Thank you for taking time to plan african meeting! It was very

difficult at the past meetings to get a room and people because of

lack of planification.

Yes, we need a room, we have also to work on an agenda and I propose

to have one hour or two on THURSDAY 6 November 2008.

Best Regards,
