Dear all,

I hope that you have all already saved the date of 4 December, the
Sunday prior to day 0 of the IGF, for the joint civil society meeting
that is the evolution of the annual Best Bits meetings that we've been
holding every year since 2012.

For those who don't know, the IGF main venue has recently changed.  We
held off announcing the venue of our civil society meeting until we were
able to secure one that was nearby, but I'm pleased to announce that we
just have.  It is the Holiday Inn Express Guadalajara Autonoma, which is
about 15 minutes from the IGF venue.  It is also a recommended
affordable venue for booking a room to stay for the IGF.

We are still putting together a program for the meeting, but you can see
a draft here, which is based on the responses to the survey about the
agenda that we circulated last month:


*To see the agenda you need to click the "Latest agenda" tab.  If you
have suggestions for changes, you can let me know, and I'll pass these
suggestions on to the other co-organisers for discussion.

To RSVP for the meeting (required!) you can click the "RSVP" button in
the toolbar underneath the map.  We expect to have a very small amount
of funding to assist those who need full or partial assistance for
travel expenses; this will only cover accommodation though, not
flights.  You can indicate your need for this when clicking RSVP. 
Please don't request funding support unless you really need it, and
please don't assume that you will receive any support until you hear
back about this.

If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks!
