  1. NCSG, NPOC, and NCUC have submitted a joint proposal to hold an outreach-oriented workshop at the IGF Bali.  It might be worth spending just a few minutes getting on the same page about what we will be doing there.

  2. I'd like to find some time to talk about the RAA, registrants' rights, and contract negotiations in general. http://pad.ncuc.org/p/RegistrantsRights
