Dear MAG members,

I would like to raise the issue concerning the necessity to organize the third MAG meeting in September.

Assuming that the May meeting will lead us to the agreement on the workshops that would be organized during the Brazil IGF and to other issues related to the IGF (main sessions, NMI liaisonship, inter-seasonal work, BP stream) and we would continue regular on-line conversation I wonder what the MAG would address in September? 

When we initially discussed the feasibility of September meeting our thoughts were focused on possible synergies between the IGF and WSIS + 10 review processes. He current UN PGA seems to have different ideas related to his task of consulting stakeholders on the substance of WSIS review. The first preparatory meeting of the WSIS + 10 review process is scheduled for early June. It my provide some clarity on the topic. But in the meantime, we need to decide how to proceed.

If the inter-sessional activities will be enthusiastically supported by different national and regional IGF and the open-ended editorial group will have wealth of material to work on maybe we could think of replacing the MAG meeting with that of editorial group? The place and exact time of the meeting should be discussed, of course. If we will not pursue with the inter-sessional work track for one or another reason then we would go straight to Joao Pessoa.

I would appreciate your thoughts on the above.

Thank you in advance.
