Thanks for the request Stephane,
Suggested topic for discussion with the GAC: 
how the GAC and GNSO can improve their joint working relationship? Are our
processes for joint engagement on areas of mutual interest adequate - can
they be improved? A particular focus on efficiency and speed would be
useful. For example, would an informal joint standing committee of some kind
be helpful? Such an informal group could be a useful forum for initial
discussion of the kinds of questions Thomas raised, providing some support
for more formal joint discussions - rather than being issue or subject
dependent. This could also be a topic for our own working session.
For the ccNSO - discussion on how we can engage around areas of mutual
interest such as emerging issues in the development of policies for law
enforcement requests 
these are my own thoughts, and I have also passed the request on to NSCG
members asking for a prompt response.
Kind regards

I would like to strongly request your help in coming up with two things in
preparation for our Prague week:

1. Topics for our interactions with the Board/GAC and ccNSO and 2. Ideas for
sessions for our work weekend.

As added context, I should say that the Council leadership is under greater
pressure than usual to provide this earlier than usual (Staff have been put
under pressure due to the delay in publishing the CR agenda that people
complained about there).

I should also add that I have asked Jeff, who has kindly volunteered (or was
kindly volunteered by me, whichever way you want to see it ;) ) to look
after our Prague agenda, to ensure that we cut down on pure working lunch
sessions. I find these sessions are an organizational nightmare as people
need time to have their lunch, which cost down on the time afforded to the
topic we are scheduled to work on.

So in short, please make a greater effort than usual to provide ideas for 1
and 2 above. These sessions, both our interactions with other groups and our
own working sessions, should be the result of Council-wide deliberations so
that they are truly effective and have greater meaning for the Council as a

Thanks for your help in this endeavor.
