CROP FY19 specifies that proposals can only be for trip to an ICANN Public Meeting or official ICANN-organized meeting. Can a list of upcoming FY19 ICANN organised meetings be provided and examples of ICANN organised meetings in FY19 ?

To confirm, since IGFs (national or regional) aren't organised by ICANN, an interpretation is that CROP proposal to attend national or regional IGFs are not allowed. Is this so?
