Re: [council] TOPICS - Agenda Board meeting with GNSO Council - Sunday March 13, 4pm 5:30 pm

Had not seen Olga's recap email before I sent mine just now so apologies for 
its redundant nature.

On the topics, I think having at least 2 topics is best. This is our only 
session with the Board in SF following the recent reorg on Board interaction 
with the community, so I think we should try and make the most of it.

As Bruce has offered to help with the Consumer Choice topic and as it has 
consistently raised questions from us on what it is exactly that the Board 
expected from us, how this resolution came into being without any priori 
consultation with us or anything, I think we should also go with that.

So I would prefer Consumer choice and new TLDs as the 2 topics, if we only go 
for 2.
