Hi Perry,

such things are always subject to negotiation. If you ask me, Alice 
should be able to convince the secretariat that she wasn't in a position 
to write a report. So should be your guy who dropped out. Co-organizers, 
on the other hand, should be grown up enough to share the responsibility 
to deliver a report. But there are just my personal thoughts.
