Well noted. Looking forward to the meeting.

> Dear Everyone,
> I trust you are all doing well. First my apology for not communicating
> regularly on the progress work of the group. We are in our peak period of
> activities in Nigeria within the ICT industry and I’m so much involved in
> many of these important industry activities.
> I’m aware some of us are engaging in various community outreaches on IGF
> 2016. Recently, I’ve had the opportunity of engaging Africa IGF community
> during my participation as one of the leading paper presenters in the
> recently concluded African IGF at Durban, South Africa and as a member of
> African IGF MAG during the preparatory process of the forum.
> I’ve been following on the progress work of Anja, Renata, Marilyn, Zeina,
> and other related work on the Newcomers Track and NRIs. In spite of these
> efforts, I must confess we have not done so well in articulating our
> messages and prioritizing around our work plan as a group. I’m aware Ginger
> and Elizabeth and others have so much to offer to enhance the work of this
> group. We can only work together to make it better.
> As we are moving toward the last phase of the preparatory process,  it is
> important we harmonize our work streams with the NRI and Newcomers track
> and other related activities on IGF outreach and related issues.
> *I suggest we work more closely together from now on the outreach agenda.
> This is very important. I like learning from experienced members and while
> harnessing innovations. I earnestly seek for very useful insight from
> members to move this group forward in this direction. What is most
> important is to share and integrate our work for the overall progress of
> the IGF event.*
> In this regard, I’m calling for active contributions and propose for a new
> meeting timeline. Our response to the earlier call for a meeting is not
> impressive. This time, I encourage you to respond to the new time set for
> our next virtual meeting. If it’s worth doing, let’s do it better, but
> together.
> Anja, please send out a new doodle poll for our next meeting in the next
> available time slot and let's take this further.
> Best Regards
> Segun Olugbile
