I have reached out to Jennifer Chang, w .asia, as one of their initiatives is with youth. She is not on MAG but as their are four youth NRIs, I want to ensure there is input opportunity for them to comment. Anja and I can also ask NRI coordinators for comments.

> For example: The whiteboard opens at 8.30AM with 30 minutes slots. The sessions are from 10AM until 1PM and from 3PM until 6PM. People arriving before 8:30AM will wait in a queue and will have the chance to schedule only one 30 minutes session each.
