I see from the preliminary planning for the ICANN meeting that 
2 March 2004 is for constituency meetings
3 March 2004 is for the GNSO Council
4 March 2004 is for the public forum

I suggest we project manage the whole day on 3 March 2004 as follows:
Morning - 4 parallel sessions on the 4 PDPs (main policy work)
- these will be public workshops managed by each task force/council
- the objective will be to gain public input as well as seek to reach
consensus positions

Afternoon - Council meeting  (mostly administrative)

I am tempted to devote the whole day of 3 March on the policy workshops,
and delay the council meeting until the morning of 4 March 2004.  I
can't think of too many issues before the Board at present that would
justify a day long public forum, and I think the Council could benefit
from having more time prior to the actual meeting workshopping some of
the policy issues.
