[Wgco] NEED FOR A MEETING OF WGCO & UPDATES

I wonder if we can perhaps consider the idea of the shared Newcomers booth as one of the outputs of this WG?  
Developing/Thinking about a FAQ that is distributed. Maybe MAG members should be wearing a similar ribbon so that Newcomers recognize who they can ask for a casual conversation when hey encounter a MAG-ite in the hall?
Having a recommendation about perhaps Newcomers ribbons to be attached to the badges of newcomers. Having a schedule for the shared booth: inviting former MAG members and present MAG members. BUT, sticking to a very tightly confirmed role, so we are not competing with the IGF Secretariat's role, but are helping! 
And having a shared and agreed strategy for online/social media outreach. 

And also to recall that we are advisory, so we are not actually in charge of  what the Secretariat does, but we are trying to bring in some vision and views and reflect what might be needed to be highly sensitive to newcomers, for instance?

Dear All,
I'll glad that we are continue the work of WGCO after the MAG virtual meeting. Unfortunately, the report of the WGCO meeting could not be considered due to time constraints during the meeting. The reporting has been rescheduled for the next MAG virtual meeting.
Furthermore, In the post-IGF report analysis, greater emphasis are made on the improvement of communications for
better outreach to the community and better dissemination of IGF documentation
and information. In the report there was general agreement that increased
outreach was an overall need, including additional community engagement and
solicitation of community inputs, and better-quality outreach and documentation of
the IGF could also lead to more high- level/political interest in its processes
and the annual meeting. 
WGCO members should remember we made some clarifications on the goal of outreach to inter-governmental and policy makers. It was agreed such outreach should normally fall under a formal shared messaging with input from Secretariat and MAG.
Fortunately we've been working on these concerns before the retreat. It is time we make effort towards achieving the provisions our shared ToR. 
















In this regards, we need to move forward to deliberate on some key issues such as the following;
Kickstarting the work of the co-facilitators of workstreams  Consider an outreach evaluation approach submission made by Mariana for members' input Clues from IGF retreat areas of concern on Comm & Outreach Workstream assignments on Upcoming Events/IGF website Improvement/
developing Outreach messages for stakeholder communities       I want to request to Anja to set up a virtual meeting of the group before the next MAG online meeting. Also doodle poll should be set up to allow us agree on common date for the meeting. Please it is very important.
Meanwhile, I have attached Anja's Submission, WGCO report, WGCO Analysis of IGF Retreat, the shared ToR for our reminder and update.

Best Regards.
Segun Olugbile
