                <div>I hope we will maintain a light approach on this.
                  I do not think it is a good use of MAG time to try to
                  create further guidelines for what the National and
                  Regional IGF Initiatives do. Let's take an
                  informational approach, and trust these folks, many of
                  whom are highly experienced as coordinators, and also
                  as committed participants in the IGF itself.</div>
                <div><br>
                </div>
                <div>From the research that I have done, and my own
                  engagement, I can attest that they do their best to
                  both support the IGF and also to reflect their own
                  local Internet community, as in fact, we all want them
                  to do.  It is not really appropriate for the MAG of
                  the IGF to try to impose on the national and regional
                  IGF Initiatives. Let's provide the information, and
                  trust on the expertise, and the commitment of those
                  who are doing a really tough job in each of their own
                  countries, or regions, to organize effective and
                  meaningful Initiatives. Some reflect the themes of
                  the IGF. Others may not, because their consultation or
                  planning process pulls them into using a lens that is
                  colored by their own communities of interest.</div>
                <div><br>
                </div>
                <div>We should value that diversity, while offering
                  information that can be used, should that be supported
                  by their planning communities. </div>
