Hello Rafik,

Two many stuff happening it seems as ICANN59 approaches.  My suggestion
Rafik select an important topic that is cross cutting and will add value to
NCUC and NPOC outreach events in ICANN59 and we move on with it, those who
can attend will attend especially as we have a lot of new members.

I hope this helps.

Kind Regards
