<p>Dear Colleagues, </p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>If we manage to hold an additional meeting in September (location tbd), it would certainly be a good opportunity to discuss the status of both the IGF best practices and the draft outcomes of the inter-sessional activities on "<em>Connecting the Next Billion</em>".
</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>If it proves to be difficult to organize a third MAG meeting, we should nevertheless be able to make progress through virtual meetings.
</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Best regards,</p>
<p>Constance <br>
</p>

<span style="font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"">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
